Also, Wolfe just loves magic or otherwise nifty swords.  Can we name them

Terminus Est
Silk's Azoth
Silk's walking stick
Latro's magic sword
Weer's penknife (as Chesterton says, a penknife is more romantic than a
 sword, because it is a secret sword)
Excalibur in Castleview
Doesn't Wat have some kind of special sword in "A Devil in the Forest"?
