Campaign Design - Spells: Shadow Knife

Shadow Knife (found in the Book of Roguish Luck)
Illusion (Shadow)

Components: V, S
Casting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Personal
Target, Effect, or Area: One weapon
Duration: 1 round per caster level
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: No

You create a weapon, the size of which depends on your caster level. At 1st to 4th level, you can create only a dagger or other light weapon. At 5th to 8th level, you can create a longsword, rapier, or other one-handed weapon. At 9th level or above, you can create a two-handed weapon. Only you can wield a shadow knife; if given to any other creature, the weapon vanishes.

The weapon created always has a black blade, guard, and hilt, and feels slightly cold to the touch. The shadow knife provides no bonuses on attack rolls or damage rolls, and does not count as a magic weapon for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction. A shadow knife provides a +4 circumstance bonus on Sleight of Hand checks involving attempts to hide the weapon. One can enchant a shadow knife with magic weapon or any other item-affecting spells as normal.
