I think the blood stained tips add a sexy look to a timeless style. It’s an intelligent fashion choice, artfully done to match the FIERCE outfits, weapons, and personality of Ezio Auditore da Firenze. Then all of a sudden there’s this little Assassin insignia peeking through the eye-catchingly crimson bars, stubbornly insisting that standard designs should be binky-ed all over. The look is so you (and you are such an ASSASSINO), and that’s what it should all be about! It’s awesome!
