A line of diamond-shaped mirrors run up the center of this short sword's blade. The smallest bit of light catches the mirrors, flashing and flickering as the wielder fights. Rumor has it that the blade was constructed by a particularly vain fighter from Sembia who later lost it in a duel. The fighter became distracted by his own reflection in a nearby shop window and failed to parry his opponent's blow.
