Toxic Blade

School necromancy [poison]; Level magus 4, sorcerer/wizard 4, bloodrager 4

As you touch your weapon, a viscous, oily fluid spreads along its length, coating the bladed surface in poison. The next successful melee attack delivered with this weapon infects the target with a virulent poison. This poison deals 1d3 Constitution damage per round for 6 rounds. A poisoned creature can attempt a Fortitude save each round to negate the damage, with the affliction ended after two successful saves.

While enchanted with this spell, the weapon may be sheathed and handled without risk of poisoning to the caster, though handing of the weapon by anyone else immediately ends the spell.
