Kurwin's Cauteriser is an uncommon, lightly enchanted (+1) special variant of the Scimitars 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.

Mortician Kurwin was known to use his trusty Cauteriser on all sorts of interesting subjects. At first there were cadavers, then people who wouldn't be missed, and it was only after he targeted a well-liked tavern owner that he was ratted out to the law.
