this is kind of reaching, tbh. the design is pretty reasonably within the standard of other similarly elaborate designs throughout the setting without necessarily being from Cainhurst, and nothing in the game suggests a link whatsoever. "had this fashioned specially to his liking" only implies that the workshop tweaked it painstakingly to measure up to the hunter's standard, and if not, it probably would have specified a location or that the Church itself ordered the design, rather than the workshop whose job it was to forge the weapons in the first place. It scales with bloodtinge when transformed because you're literally using arrows tipped/coated with QS bullets which contain your (tainted) blood. This is probably just a case of the localization team using flowery language, and any lore link would be established in the original Japanese text, which, by nature of the language, would specifically differentiate whether it was forged by the Church or a third party at their request.
"The simplest explanation is usually the correct one." FROM doesn't play 4D chess with its descriptions or designs as much as people like to believe.
