This is the internet. But, I wouldn't preface a question to a real teacher with, "okay". Anyway, serious painters usually have lots of brushes. If I were from a very traditional sect of European witches, I would probably hire the town blacksmith to make me something graceful that would balance for all the major functions, rather than trying to multi-task with a grape hook. I think it would be really cool to have a blade that resembled something from a Kalaripayit school, with different blades for different duties combined within the same tool. Often, the more mana in a magickal weapon, the more it looks like something from a movie. I don't know about details but, I think that how this or that school spells certain names might involve tribal shibboleths. Which elves might sneer at you for using a variant term depends on which elves support or oppose your work, I guess. Magick is an art, not an exact science, and is a lot more dependent upon individual investment than are doctrines of religion. The more ambitious an art teacher, the more he will want you to imitate his peculiar take. It seems to me that a more creative art teacher will not bother as much with that type of thing.
