|A terrible weapon, forged in the fires of Hell.|
Demon blades are one of the better one-handed long blades you can find. Although less powerful than double swords they are slightly faster, better for dexterous characters, and you'll find plenty of them in the late-game off of hell knights, usually with decent brands and enchantment values.
Also, worshipers of good gods cannot attack with them without suffering penance. However, worshipers of the Shining One can convert a demon blade into a more powerful eudemon blade of holy wrath by wielding it and praying at his altar once they reach max piety. You can also reverse the process at Kiku's or Lugonu's altars, but this is usually a bad trade.
