  1. I see a pastel and I wanted it painted black.
    No colours anymore, I want them to turn black.

    Earlier, I commented on blades in B5, with a special mention of Gil Hibben. B5 also features numerous examples of “alien” blades that are simply unusual human blades. The Drazi knives, for example (with the horizontal grip) are a South Asian push dagger called a katar. In today’s episode, the Centauri assassins carry a wide-bladed short sword that is an Italian design called a cinquedea, although the blade was smoother than is typical. Most cinquedea have a set of fullers, though the smoother blade that we saw is no unheard of.
