A kishkoman, or whistle-knife was a unique weapon found in the Cold Lands.[1]


A kishkoman looked like a small animal horn only slightly longer than a child's hand. The broader base of the horn served as the handle and was perforated with small holes. When blown, the kishkoman emitted a high-pitched sound that only elves could hear. This sound was used to call for aid to any within hearing range of the whistle.[1]


These items were made from the horn of a small swiftstag buck. Mothers typically gave them to children when they reached an age where they could go off on their own.[1]
