    Default Li Xun Huan's dagger

    I watched Dagger Lee and he had a heap of daggers, but in the New Romantic Swordsman, he only had the one dagger.

    So how many dagger did Li Xun Huan actually have in the novel?

    We really don't know. But he always has one whenever it's in need. Many wonder howcome we never seen him buy any.

    I asked the same question several months ago. I believe Meh replied that Li Xun Huan only had one dagger. The guy is a good example of Reusability

    Is there anything special about his dagger or just a common dagger?

    Instead of answering directly, I'll just give a quote from Meh's superb translation.

    __________

    The man in green said, “You should realize, this ‘Green Devil Hand’ is made with rare metals, mixed with hundreds of poisons, then used seven years to forge. Can be said to be the most dominating weapon in the martial world.”

    Li Xun Huan said, “Bai Xiao Sheng’s weapons list rank Green Devil Hand number nine. I can see why its so valuable.”

    The man in green said, “So if I give you this glove, would you give me the vest?”

    Li Xun Huan thought for a second. Then said, “My dagger is made by a regular blacksmith using 6 hours. Yet on Bai Xiao Sheng’s weapons list, it’s ranked number three!”

    The man in green sighed. “You’re trying to say that weapons aren’t important. What’s important is the person holding the weapon, right?”

    The dagger was ordinary, made of ordinary steel, and forged by an ordinary blacksmith. It was said to be very light.

    It's been a while since I've read Sentimental Swordsman Ruthless Sword and I've got a crap memory. Just a question to anyone who knows, did the novel describe any of Li's dagger as having his surname carved on it?

    Nope. It's just a plain old dagger.

    Many of Gu Long's ace weapons-wielders did not use special weapons. In LUK SIU FUNG, both Sai Mun Chui Sheut and Yip Goo Sing used very ordinary, unspectacular swords.

    Oh right. Just asking because in Full Moon Curved Sabre, Ding Pang's maid took out a dagger that Li gave to her ancestor and it had the word 'Li' on it.
