    I have seen this concept pop up in both light contact LARPs I have attended and in posts on LARP forums. Are coreless melee weapons allowed if they can be made without excessive flex? My idea is to make a knife class weapon out of camp pad foam and plastidip for stealthy assassin strikes.

    Yes coreless are allowed and are allowed to be thrown if they meet the build requirements.
    15" (38 cm) in length max and no more than .5 lbs. and the weapon has no core.

    Just to add to this, as Shaden Chaser pointed out - THROWN weapons must not have a Core.

    This might make you think that Melee weapons MUST have a core.
    Now, while I would normally say Yes - definitely - or your weapon will break SO easily.

    The situations which you should be using a Coreless Weapon for Melee strikes would be stuff like stabbing someone in a weak spot for sneaking up behind them... kind of like if you wanted to kill a certain "King"... or anyone else really.

    i know the daggers i have seen from murdoch and aretenen are coreless, and they would hold up to both throwing and "careful" melee usage.

    I'm not fearsome, i'm nice and try and help the people.....but it seems so often some youngster with more vigor than reason must try and kill me or at least talk of it.....remember youngsters i am old for a reason from a profession where most die very young. If you come to kill me, even these days it will not be easy. I will endeavor not to injure you too badly or with any permanency, as much as your agression permits mercy. But i emplore most would be assaassians, there are quarrels enough abounding for all that we need not fight amongst ourselves.

    ooc/
    Coreless weapons are fine daggers and small things like trowing stars, anything larger and it will rapidly become a floppy pillow, remember this is MED contact not lightest touch, you do actually have to hit them and it actually has to have some amount of impact on it. Corless dagger works good.....coreless sword...not so much.
