Excellent! Too cool to know what they're saying in the asides.

As for the Storm's knives....they not Chinese so I doubt wewondo is any kind of name for them.

The knives used (good closeup when Wind cuts Miao Yen loose in the brothel) with 'bent' forward curved and enlarged point are kukri from Nepal. Gurkha troops popularized their image to some extent.

The blade design harkens back to the kopis used by Alexander's troops, some say as a 'bringback' from early Asian expeditions.

As someone who knows no Chinese at all, I was wondering - what exactly do any of the names mean? Lo Pan, Wing Kong, Chiang Shi?
