Mirrorblades are kamerel mirror-weapons. When using a mirrorblade, if the target of the attack is wielding a weapon, and the full weapon damage of that weapon (including enchantment, material bonuses, and beatitude bonuses, but excluding strength and skill) is higher than the base damage of the mirrorblade (1d6 or 1d8), the full weapon damage of the target's weapon is used as the base damage of the mirrorblade.

Because the player is likely to have a good, enchanted weapon, mirrorblade-wielding monsters can be quite dangerous. This is especially true for silver-sensitive PCs wielding silver weapons (as the silver bonus would be applied both for their own weapon and for the mirrorblade).
