Weeping Blades as depicted in Total War: Warhammer II

Weeping Blades are weapons wielded by the infamous Skaven assassins of Clan Eshin. During their manufacture a small amount of Warpstone is incorporated into their structure along with certain magical spells known only to the sorcerers of the ratmen-assassins.[1a][2a]

A Weeping Blade constantly sweats a deadly corrosive venom so that any wound, no matter how superficial, will always prove fatal. The venom melts through armour to deliver the poisoned point. Most of these weapons take the form of knives or swords but Clan Eshin also manufactures other weapons with the same deadly properties, such as Throwing Stars. [1a][2a]

Weeping Blades can be created in the form of Skaven Punch Daggers.[3a]
