This horrifying five-foot weapon has been recovered by police during a knife amnesty. The three-handled sword with a blade at either end, designed to be swung like a paddle, shocked officers who took custody of it.
A spokesman for police in Gloucester, where it was surrendered, said: "It is a particularly nasty weapon that can, literally, take someone's head off. We are very glad it is off the streets and we want more weapons handed in."
The blade is believed to be a stainless-steel copy of a Klingon weapon used in the science fiction series Star Trek. "It's an extremely dangerous weapon," said a martial arts expert last night.
I have no joke here:
