comment What is the exact meaning of “blood-dimmed (tragedy),” and how does it pass current among Anglophones?
"Tanning the hide" would take a wooden or rawhide hammer, or mallet. Hammers are indispensable no matter the task (as an impact or force multiplier), so don't hesitate from using one. Bigger is not always better though :)

comment 'Whereas' as conjunction between main clause and subordinate clause?
Does wherewith (also marked as archaic) fall into the same category? Could it substitute, or is it as badly out of place?

comment “In undertaking a review” vs. “by undertaking a review”
The context following the example suggests a different tense is required than what was given. Among the other concerns, I think it may be a better candidate for writers, per the guidance outlined within by @Kris.

comment What do you call a person who leads a charge?

comment Offer / Quotation / Proposal?
More context is needed if you want help finding a particular answer. In one case a piece of paper is given by hand to a customer, another it is mailed to them. A small difference probably, but the discrepancy in context suggests more to the situation. Is this same piece of paper with the same information given to more than one customer, or only one particular customer? Is this done without any prior request from the customer, or did they seek a price for that particular "car"?

@shanba_kay As it is, this is really open ended. Can you narrow this down a bit, maybe by giving some context or examples that more specifically address the points you are most curious about?
