Sahara Slicers in use.

The Sahara Slicers are a Pre-Hardmode shortsword that are dropped by the Desert Scourge. When swung, a pair of dual daggers rapidly stab in front of the player. Hitting an enemy with one of the daggers will spawn 2 bolts which appear behind the player, up to a maximum of 10. Right clicking while a bolt is available will throw one of the bolts in the direction of the cursor.

Like every shortsword, they have an incredibly short range, but unlike most other vanilla shortswords, they have autoswing.

Their best modifier is Legendary.
