Overview: You'd think a sword named after the Snnowager would be super powerful...

The Good: The sword is actually a decent low-level Dual Duty. It beats my favorite beginner's weapon, the Scroll of Ultranova, without skipping a beat. Interestingly enough, it also beats the Golden Compass, which is a highly-recommended starter Dual Duty.

The Bad: Timing is everything with a Dual Duty, and this one needs some special timing. In most scenarios, unless the Sword is used at the perfect time, it will come behind. Cheap weapons like Ridiculously Heavy Battle Hammer can beat this hands down and are as ridiculously cheap as their names might imply.

The Ugly Truth: It's very situational, but the Snowager Sword is a decent start to learning the methods of attacking and defending at the same time with Dual Duty weaponry.

Price/power (4/5): Not too bad for the price, though there are more powerful weapons out there. Still, dual duties are hard to find at this price level.

Tactical (3/5): This is vulnerable to Shiny Shoal Shell Shield, {{Leaf Shield, and Studded Leather Cuirass. Defense wise, it's really not too bad. While it's no Scarab Ring, it does block the 3 fire icons.

Bonus (0/1): This is a MASSIVE icy blast?!

Closing remarks: This reminds me of classic weapons such as the Cloudy Wand of Storms and Frozen Wand of Crystals. Similar or better weapons include Amulet of Inevitable Betrayal, Elegant Desert Sword, Makeshift Ships Hammer, and Golden Compass.
