You can use a ready melee weapon to parry a grab, grapple, slam (including a pounce or flying tackle), or any other unarmed attack at no special penalty as your attacker enters close combat. Effective "weapon weight" is ST/10 lbs. if he grabs or grapples, ST lbs. otherwise.

If you succeed, roll against weapon skill to injure your foe (at -4 if he used Judo or Karate). If your weapon can only thrust, success inflicts thrusting damage; otherwise, use swinging damage. This counts as a parry, not an attack.
