Well, first a good knifu would be ambidextrous so it can be manipulated with either, or even both hands at the same time. The back should be curved gracefully and have small dimples at the base of the spine. The belly should be sharp with only a slight curve, and have a full grind, with an up-swept top. The butt should be rounded and full so that it doesn't slip from your grip when in active use. Although some would prefer they have cryogenic treatment, usually heat treatment is much more desirable. The best knifu should be one that is easy-opening and folds without much resistance, and have a guard that is easily removable. I was going to include a description of the tang, but frankly that is best left to the imagination... Ideally knifus should have periodic maintenance done with a good honing oil. Finally, the knifu should be fully dressed with a leaf pattern design, with a satin finish and mother of pearl adornments. A knifu like that would have a high retention.

I forgot about (probably) the most important thing: when you unfold it, there shouldn't be any spiders...

A magic one that morphs to the owner's tastes, and to suit what needs to be done. Knifu looks like whatever you want Knifu to look.
