Long Description

This is, essentially, the three-foot-long sharpened fang of a sea serpent on a hilt. Hard as steel and a quarter the weight, these weapons are traditionally wielded by sea serpents against sailors; clearly, its former owner bit off a little more than it could chew. The hooked curve that once prevented prey from escaping makes this sword an excellent slashing weapon, while the groove that used to hold venom still runs down the middle of the blade, stained faintly black. Its hilt is utilitarian, plain steel wrapped in black silk with a curved crossguard.

Appraises As

The sea serpent fang is about three feet long and roughly a couple of inches wide. It is made of sea serpent enamel and could be used as a weapon of type sword.

Acquisition

The fang can be dipped into the slim clear vial of sea serpent venom, also available from Niknax to load it with poison. One vial of venom lasts for an hour (to be confirmed) from the time of dipping. Dipping into a partially empty vial added the following line to the item description.

Blue-black venom clings to the venom groove. It looks like it'll last for at least thirty minutes.
