A six foot Darkwood hafted Halberd with a steel head with a small cresent shaped axe fixed to a longer bladed spear.
Etrakidion oddly enough functions only in the hands of Patrick Hobb, if anyone other were to wield it it would only function as a +1 Halberd with no further special properties. In the hands of Patrick a silver scrollwork appears on the head and silver wire work becomes visible all over the haft.
Currently Etrakidion grants Patrick the following abilities.
13: +2 Ready Frost Enhancement, +2 Bonus to Dexterity, +2 Bonus to Strength, +2 Bonus to Charisma, +2 Bonus to Constitution, +3 Bonus to Diplomacy, Sense Motive and Perform, +1 Natural Armour
