If you want to see really luscious knives, check the designs by Wen-M, a DeviantArt user who does amazingly creative and detailed designs of all kinds of weapons.
Walter: This blade was forged six hundred years ago, by one of the master smiths of Italy.
This one has a jeweled hilt and was originally designed to battle against vrykolakas.
Integra: What’s this one?
Walter: Um…that’s an ordinary kitchen knife.
Integra: I’ll take it.
