Alex Hribal was a school stabber that severely injured 21 people at his high school using only two kitchen knives, no guns or explosives of any kind.
I do consider kitchen knives to be a regular weapon, especially after hearing some news related to terrorism in the media between 2016-2017. When I was talking about unusual weapons, I was talking about weapons like a piece of firewood or a certain custom-made bulldozer. But I do consider air guns or BB guns to be an unusual weapon. I would make an exception if the bladed weapon was usually perceived as ineffective during a rampage.
Ex: Swiss Army knife, scissors, and scalpel. Not ex: Kitchen knives, hunting knives, machetes, and axes

Hello! I just looked into your topic and you remembered a topic I made a year ago which covered the same thing – unusual weapons. There is the topic: Mass murders with unusual weapons. But there's no problem with that. I will cite examples of unusual weapons I had cited on the thread I made about unusual weapons:
Robert Kerby K. 1986 - German who killed 2 people and wounded 5 to 10 with a wooden plank in Angoda, Sri Lanka
Alejandro Amigó Vergara 1974 - Chilean who killed 4 people and injured 9 with rocks in Talca, Chile
Khun Sri Supahat 1914 - Thai who killed 1 and injured 15 in Sao Ching Cha, Thailand, he used a knife for the majority of the attacks, but used a lamppost and a plate as well
Marivaldo Teixeira da Silva 2015 - Brazilian who injured 18 people with a chair in Brasília, Brazil inside a school
Maropally ricepounder rampage 1936 - this one is unusually deadly and unusual, a Hindu killed 14 family members and wounded 2 others in Maropally with a ricepounder. This is confusing at least, since the ricepounder is a simple sort of machine, not a handheld object
Cirumput bare hands rampage 1988 - Indonesian women identified as O. L killed 10 children and injured 2 with his bare hands and barefoot
Martin Philip Parkinson 1974 - Australian who killed 1 person and injured 12 with a shovel, a milk bottle. He did also use a car, but he used shovel for the majority of the attacks

Even though it wasn't used in the attack, Ian Chimenko, 13 at the time, stabbed 3 students with a knife (not too unusual) at Antietam Middle School. He brought a small blowtorch which he held in front of the principal and two teachers in the hallway before being taken down (he didn't actually harm anyone with it though).
