I found one swedish blacksmith who makes very unique looking art knifes and most of them have quite steampunkish details, color schemes or material choises. http://www.northlandknives.se/pages.asp?page=gallery&album_id=52


Am in love with the 'Albino Aurora'. *sigh*

As a possible defensive unit (Note I do not claim this as a weapon) a 12" steel ruler can be quite effective.
I regret to admit that two blocking moves and a strike down the Sturnum produced a result allowing me to retire gracefully.

And in keeping with the whole SP concept a wooden folding rule will look the part and can be used as effectively.

This hasn't been posted on in a while so I'm going to try to bring it back.

Would a hammer similar to this be considered steampunk? I made one a while ago but mine has twine wrapped around half of it.

To my eye, not so much. Give it a machine-turned oak or walnut haft with brass ferrules, and maybe replace the thong with braided brass cable, and you might be heading in the right direction.

I have to agree here.
The only way I could see this working would be if it was modified as von Corax said, or as part of a steampunk/"weird west" Native American outfit.
Unless you happen to be a time-traveling caveman, in which case it would definitely be appropriate.

I have to agree with the others. It's just a bit too primitive and rough. A machined shaft and replacing the stone with a large brass or cast iron gear, and it'd definitely be on the right track.

Example of what I mean:

We ought to be careful starting stonepunk, people might get the wrong idea and start adding lava lamps and blacklight paints to things that don't need them.

The Woodland Survival Flipper


The concept seems simple enough.. I think the release could be improved upon, making it more similar to a regular crossbow.

That's great!
You could certainly give it a light steaming to improve the overall appearance.

How about a pana? A simple piece of rubber with a loop on one end, attached to a handle. It throws hooked darts with tremendous power. Or the ever popular molotov cocktail.
