Whispering Shrike Price 5,940 gp; Weight 2 lbs. Current Owner: Reynald Flambeau
Whispering Shrike is a +1 wakizashi (treat as shortsword which can cut and thrust) of incredibly beautiful design. The sword is etched with images of seven shrikes perched on a coiling branch that runs the length of the blade. Once per day, Whispering Shrike can be used to cast shield other (5 hours duration) on any creature touched by the blade while you wield it. The sword has a secret compartment in the hilt just large enough to hold a small item such as a flask or rolled piece of paper.
