Price/Power (0/5)
Given it's set price you may be forgiven for thinking this is due a higher mark here. Unfortunately, given it will likely take upwards of four turns to get off the heal, there are better options out there.

Countermeasures (0/5)
A 100% heal is great, but you need reliability. When you need to heal you need to heal fast; having to lose one of your weapons for multiple turns is a hard ask when you are scrambling for that re-do.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
There is a mildly weaker and much cheaper version of this called the Golden Sun Chalice if you don't mind fighting with a hand tied behind your back. While the Leaded Elemental Vial and Jade Scorchstone have dropped in price, you may be better served with a {{Bag of Healing}}. Alternatively, if your health is so large it warrants a short waiting period, but you don't want to lose at least the idea of having a second weapon- even the Sword of Lameness and its meager 12.5% chance of healing would be better than this.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
Honestly, given the fact that based on current market prices of the single use full healers (Jade Elixir,Life Giver, Amulet of Life and Lucky Robots Foot) you could literally buy somewhere between 1071-272 guaranteed full life heals for the cost of this item. Do you think you are going to use this weapon more than a thousand times?

At a Glance (1/3):
Fully heals you, but it has a 25% chance of success. Breaks for the battle afterwards.

In-Depth (1/4):
One thing about healers is that you need them to work exactly like you want them to, when you need them to. You can't do this with this scorchstone.

Picture this: if you are about to dive into the deep ocean, are you going to use a submarine that has a multitude of cracks and leaks? Would you expect it to keep itself strong when the pressure's on?

Price (0/2):
I cannot justify a 3m price tag with a weapon that *might* save you. Still, it is a lot cheaper than Leaded Elemental Vial. Worth it? Only if you're a crazy, risk-taking battler.

Bonus (0/1):

I would rather have Velms Healing Potion than this... but barely...

Final Score: 2/10
