I think everyone knows that weapons are not allowed in prisons, so how do these guys keep stabbing and beating people with sharp and blunt objects? Well if you were locked in a cage for the rest of your life and you keep getting beat up every day, I think you are going to pull some heavy duty MacGyver type shit and make yourself a pretty little shank out of toilet paper rolls, which actually happens. Here are a bunch of creative confiscated prison weapons, some with back stories.
Materials: Stainless steel tablespoon; handle wrapped with upholstery.
Backstory: At its core here is a spoon, stolen from the staff dining room at Rahway, where, as in many federal penitentiaries, inmates were restricted to using plastic flatware. Stamped “State of NJ,” the spoon likely to have been sharpened on the cement floor or wall of a cell. The bowl of the spoon was filled with wax and then wrapped with upholstery thread (taken from the furniture shop, where it was used to re-stitch chair cushions) thereby forming a generously-scaled handle.
