Unfortunately, this weapon is likely to be useless in most games. Its principal advantage is its to-hit bonus, making for reliable (and hence, "quick", as compared to a less accurate weapon) damage against monsters with low AC. However, this advantage is only useful in the early game, where this weapon is rarely seen. Its damage bonus is not nearly enough even for SLASH'EM's mid-game, let alone the late game. A lawful character who receives it as a first sacrifice gift might find it useful for a while, but will definitely want to sacrifice for something better later on.
