UK Prison Guards Confiscate Impressive Final Fantasy Weapons Made From Matchsticks

Prison officials at the Category C Usk prison in Monmouthshire, Wales, confiscated this collection of Final Fantasy weapons created by a bored by talented prisoner using nothing but matchsticks and glue. The collection was fashioned with such precision that blades were “razor sharp” and the barrel on the Gunblade actually revolved:

“Their realism presented a genuine threat to the safety of staff, visitors and other prisoners.”

A security bulletin was sent to jails throughout the UK after the discovery was made, but apparently this has happened before, as two matchstick knives were recently found at Littlehey prison in Cambridgeshire.
