  • This item likely refers to the Diablo character Bartuc, also known as the Warlord of Blood.
  • Bartuc was said to be impervious to damage due to wearing a blood red suit of armor, the only weakness was his throat which was not properly protected. It is likely that this was the weapon that killed him.
  • This weapon has a base attack speed of -30, making it as fast as a Phase Blade. All other classes will view its speed as Very Slow, which is moot, considering it is only usable for the Assassin.
