The main thing here, as said by several others already is that there is no need to carry any weapons around anvil. There are no random monster attacks like in other systems and in the very unlikely event that you get attacked by another player it’ll be your voice not your weapon that saves you.
So with that in mind it comes down to how your character would see themselves armed in non-combat situations.
I play in a group of highborn Cataphracts. We see that as a version of a knight so we always carry a sword - firstly because IC we see it is a status symbol, and secondly OOC we want to show off our sword belts and scabbards.
Conversely we make play out of looking down on uncouth provincial thugs swanning around our beloved Anvil carrying pole arms and wearing armour.
Don’t worry about what you think you might need to carry, but more what your character wants to carry and their motivation for doing so.
If that makes sense.
