ice sickle
ice sickle

I know, I know. You want to ride your ice sickle, you want to ride your Ike. Got it. You'd be far better off using it as a weapon than trying to ride it, though, given that it's about as sharp as frozen water can be. Weaponsmiths have found that the light gleaming off its frozen edge, plus the latent proletarian symbolism, tend to enrage monsters. No one's exactly sure how or why, though.

Type: weapon (1-handed knife)
Power: 100
Cannot be discarded

+15 to Monster Level
