Version 0.23: This article is up to date for the latest stable release of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup.
A purple glaive that was created by a mad god, and carries a curse which transforms anyone wielding it into a prune. Fortunately, the curse works very slowly, and one can use it briefly with no consequences worse than slightly purple skin and a few wrinkles.

The glaive of Prune[1] is a straightforward enough artefact: a +12 glaive of chopping. The "prune curse" on this weapon has no actual in-game effect, other than making Zin hate it. Most characters who happen to use polearms can benefit from it for most of the game; a +12 glaive of chopping is a perfectly sufficient weapon to win the game with. Although a bardiche may require too much skill to be used effectively.


Prior to 0.15, the glaive of Prune had a +4,+12 enchantment.
