STUDY: You think you can WAVE, RUB, TURN and POKE the steel dagger.

WAVE: A low-pitched "Whoof Whuf!" drums on your ears as you brandish the steel dagger in the air.
RUB: You scrape your thumb across the blade of your steel dagger, checking its edge.
TURN: You tighten your grip on the steel dagger.
POKE: You flip your steel dagger into the air, catching the hilt on the tips of your fingers and balancing the steel dagger vertically. Wavering only slightly, you hold the position for a long moment before letting the blade fall forward and the hilt settle back into your grip.
