In combat, it could be wielded as a sickle +2.
The weapon also had a limited number of charges. At the cost of one charge, the wielder could use the sickle to cast a plant door spell, with a few differences from the normal druidic version. The sylvan door or pathway always lasted ten minutes and could be used by others, not just the wielder. The path created could measure up to 120 feet (37 meters) in length.
