Does anyone have any idea, why the cutting weapon, as opposed to the
firearms, is in some languages (mostly Romance ones) called "white
weapon"? Is here the color symbolism the main factor or are there any
"pure linguistic" reasons for that? And, what more important, does
anyone know any non-european languages in which the cutting weapon is
also called "white"?
