It is considered a magical weapon of enchantment level 1 and deals 2d4 (piercing) damage (adjusted for Strength bonus Shadows of Amn LOADCNTR00004 Icon SoABaldur's Gate II:

) with a range of 1 and a speed factor of 3.

Each successful hit upon a living target forces a save vs. death at a penalty of 2 to negate instant death. The effect is Kill target (Op Code 13), Death type Normal, and is considered Natural/Non-Magical for the purposes of Dispelling or Bypassing Resistance. Even if the save is made, the target still suffers 20 hit points of Poison damage unless immune (no save, Op Code 25, Natural/Non-Magical, 1 second duration--i.e., one-time only).

The item also provides Protection from spell (Op Code 206), Entangle.[1]
