Arcane Absorption Dagger is a very rare, lightly enchanted (+1) special variant of the Daggers family of weapons. It is a simple melee weapon wielded in one hand. As a finesse weapon, it can benefit from the wielder's Dexterity and not just their Strength. It's a light weapon that anyone can dual-wield without special training. Its design lends itself well to be thrown at enemies as a projectile.

The leather grip of this knife is decorated with jugs. As you turn it, you can see that the jug begins empty and fills. It's only when you reach the final image that you can see a man's severed head over the jug, filling with beads of blood.
