+1 Wakizashi (Ultimate Combat Pg134)
Whispering Shrike is a +1 wakizashi sword of incredibly beautiful design. The sword was 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 on any creature touched by the blade while you wield it. The blade’s tsuka (hilt) has not weathered the passage of time as well as the blade itself, and until the pommel is repaired (a process requiring 600GP, a day’s work, and a DC20 Craft [weapons] check), attacks with this weapon take a -2 penalty due to the loose grip. A DC20 Perception check (automatic success once repair is underway) reveals a secret compartment in the hilt large enough to hold a flask or other similar item.
