Thief Weapons (Claw and Dagger) need a new look

As the title states, End-game thief weapons look odd for their actual names. I think maybe they need a makeover. I may even draw up some concept sketches based on other daggers as well as the overall theme of Arcane Umbra and Absolab.

1. Daggers

This is the Arcane Umbra dagger. It looks like a plate, or as the MS discord lovingly called it, a "pizza cutter". This does not look like a "dagger". For a comparison, here is the Dual Blade's Arcane Umbra Katara.

That looks much more like a dagger, right?
According to a google search, a dagger is: a short knife with a pointed and edged blade, used as a weapon. Google images revealed many daggers that do NOT look like the Arcane Umbra Dagger shown above, this strange "plate" theme is seen in Absolab, Arcane Umbra, Utgard, and Jahlin weapons.
2. Claws

This is the Arcane Umbra Claw. It just doesn't look like a "claw", it looks like a mitt or a glove, it might even be better as a Knuckle type weapon (boxing glove style?) For another comparison, the Utgard Claw:

It looks more "claw" like in design, no? Well the Mitt type of design is seen in Absolab, Arcane Umbra, and Jahlin weapons.

The suggestion is simple:
Change how the weapon looks. I may add some concept sketches later.

(Also may add screenshots of the other offending weapons)

    The fact that the genesis weapon also follows this trend of dagger shapes also concerns me, because in all honesty it does not look pleasing compared to all the other weapons. When I first got my Arcane umbra dagger, it was a big achievement for me, unfortunately the pleasure of finally retrieving this well deserved item is not backed up in it's looks compared to many other arcane umbra weapons in the game. Which encouraged me to use an anvil to show a much more pleasing dagger, being the Raven horn Baselard. In my opinion, this was one of the last few daggers that were introduced into the game that actually looked like I was using a dagger, I know that NA Nexon doesn't really have the power to change the game on a large scale but I do wish to voice my opinion that I do not like having a mezzaluna as a weapon for a thief. I want a knife :(

    Thief skills revolve around slashing and has very little stabbing involving. The new so-called daggers lack sharp points but the edge can still be sharp. The new dagger looks like a protractor or pizza cutter (I was pretending I had a dagger when I was in math class.)

    For more menacing knives, Team Fortress 2's Sniper has a variety of Kukris which according to Sniper, "Now that is a knife"

    I for one am extremely triggered by the appearance of our claws. Absolab Gloves look more menacing than the Revenge Guard. It looks more like a oven mitt and not something for handling sharp knives.

    Pizza cutter daggers suck farts. Anyone who thinks otherwise, please let the door hit you on the way out.

    Yeah, but honestly...I generally like the look of clean gear if I get my character's look right...just not...these daggers/claws. I love the idea of carrying around a dagger on my Dual Blade and stabbing stuff with it (even if attacks are not stabby) because...well that's what a thief class in games generally is! Sneaking up to someone, poking them with your weapon, and taking their loot :P
