Whispering Strike is a +1 wakizashi of incredibly beautiful design. The sword is etched with images of seven Samurai’s perched on a coiling branch that runs the length of the blade. Once per day, Whispering Strike can be used to cast shield other on any creature touched by the blade while you wield it. The blade’s tsuka (hilt) has not weathered the passage of time and its magic allows anyone to use whispering strike as a simple light weapon or even as a monk’s weapon.
A DC 20 perception check reveals a secret compartment in the hilt just large enough to hold a small item such as a flask, 1 potion or rolled piece of paper.
