A dark sort of honour, perhaps.

Well, that's the thing I was thinking of. There's a Japanese word 'akunin' for a tipe of a man, who is evil in societies eyes, but he has his own moral code and a high purpose, and he follows this code so dedicatedly that becomes an object of respect. There is Russian writer with the pseudonym Boris Akunin who write about this things. And in your country there is Thomas Harris who wrote about Hannibal. :)

Interestingly informative.
With that explanation, I can understand your initial interpretation. :nod:

I would say that I love Rapier too even if I don't know that much other sword, but yeah, I love the style of this sword
and the finesse of the blade.

Quality mask design here. I also like the fact that he's drawing the sword with his left hand. Sinister in more ways than one.

Good eye.
I'm actually left-handed. :horns:

Same here. First learned that 'sinister' originally meant left-handed through my college fencing club.

For a long time being left-handed was associated with evil.

Had I the time, I would've taken up fencing. :nod:

The sword of the necklace can actually be unsheathed.

When necklaces have a bonus like that, it's always more exciting!
