A question about the slaves

How many weapons the slaves do actually possess (about how many)?

If the 15 ex-slaves would all have had four blades each as Shae had, there would almost be one for everyone! But paying heed to the beginning of the story and to the overall "believability", I can't see that as a right solution...

So is there a wealth of blades (or bows or the like) to actually distribute more evenly, or are we really having a shortage of weapons? I would think the latter option to be more realistic, but what do you think?
