Every item does not need to be "magic" or "powerful". Many perfectly mundane (in the non magical sense) weapons have:
*) Interesting back stories. Perfectly non magical weapons can be noted weapons with a place in history, part of legends, or associated with great heroes.

*) Important places in their cultures. Katanas for an example. Heraldic shields for another. These weapons are often symbols of some group, social class, or culture. These are normally a type of weapon post.

*) Just a detailed weapon. These weapons are not your everyday weapons list kind of things. They have more to them than some simple specifications. These are not common weapons you have seen on a half dozen weapons lists. They will have elements of shape or descriptions that makes it special and different. These are normally a type of weapon post.

That is what these threads are for. Perfectly normal, non magical weapons have a place here too.

One Caveat. If the weapon you are thinking of is "funky", having some odd combination of blades or chains or pointy things, the question we have to ask... is this weapon feasable and practical? If it is not, then do not add it, it will be deleted.

Almost every possible combination of weapons have been tried in a variety of cultures. Useful weapons were kept and more of them made, while those that were not really useful were ignored. So you might have a "cool idea" for a weapon, but you need to think hard about if it is really useful (doing a little historical weapon research might be useful too.)
