Olivier Dupuis gave me some more from Strasbourg:

1400 a law in the ‘Knechtordnung’ banning apprentices, day laborers and servants (knechten) from carrying swords, messers or axes above a specific size unless they were in the employ of the city.

1407 a day laborer was exiled for being caught for the third time carrying a langes messer

1418 – regulation stipulating that no-one was to carry a sword or langes messer with a blade wider than the length of a finger.
