This weapon will have 3 ratings, a TPL one, one against Prismatic Mirror wielding enemies, and a regular use one. The final rating will be an average of those two.

For TPL:
Price (1/3): the small price for its worth is good, but it can't get a perfect rating for a few reasons...
Power (2/5): For starters. It does 4.5 icons, not even five. If it's just the physical attack, Engraved Chakram does 6 icons, and there's many that do 2 or 3 icons. If it's about the dual duty physical then Black Fan of Shenkuu does 3 air, 3 physical and defends 3 physical, while Chain Spear does 6 physical AND defends 3 physical, but keep in mind that TPL has a limit of 14 total icons per turn, including defending icons and icons from abilities, so you'd only be able to use 5 more icons and your opponent might not even use physical icons for you to defend against.
Uniqueness (0/2): I think I listed enough options up there to show why this item isn't unique at all. As much as I love its art I already gave it too many points.

Overall it's not worth using. It does fractional icons, has many better options both with similar icons or just straight up better upgrades, and even then, it takes more icon slots than the usual constant, so it'd be more situational even if it didn't have fractional icons. For that it gets a 3/10

Against Prismatic Mirror:
Price (0/3): It's cheap, but you want the best option to deal with the mirror's reflection, and not only are there better, there are better at around the same price.
Power (0/5): You won't do much with 4.5 icons, and the blocking doesn't matter for what you want to use this for. For j...

Price/Power (0/5)
Cheap, but weak.

Countermeasures (0/5)
You would never use this item in 2P- there would be no point. One Altadorian Swordbreaker and you would be sunk.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
Unless you are versing something with a crazy inside reflection the Ultimate Negg Hammer is likely your best bet. Then you could look forward towards the Stone Foam Finger. But really, do remember how easy physical is to block.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
While I do see the idea of the very tiny niche where this item may be at least slightly useful- I do not see it as something which is really worth boosting the ratings for. I mean, if we were still getting 1P opponents and HP increase was still a thing, perhaps, but as it stands this is very much out of date.

This is one of those weapons that would be considered generally useless, but actually useful against a 1P challenger with a Prismatic Mirror. There aren't many options for Physical-only weapons, which gives this weapon a niche.

Other cheap Physical-only attackers include Spooky Rubber Axe, Sandstone Boots, and Engraved Chakram.

Don't pick this weapon for general use.
