Regarding that friction folder, the one made from a deer's antler tine, it is the only one of my rather large collection of sharp and pointy things that my wife calls "beautiful." That is because she really likes the carving on the antler tine. For me, it is the carving on the hilt of the cinquedea as well as all of those fullers in the blade that grabbed me. How could I resist something with six, count 'rm, six fullers on each side of the blade?
And that Vendetta Corsa is just so sleek and pretty for what is, in reality, a very deadly weapon.
