Black Lance's Last Strike is a sword form. It is a simple form, depending entirely upon speed to draw a sword from the scabbard and thrust it into the enemy's neck. It is, however, an all-or-nothing move; if it fails, the swordsman usually dies.

Gareth Bryne used this form to kill an assassin sneaking up on Siuan Sanche during the Seanchan raid on the White Tower. The assassin was a Seanchan Bloodknife.[1]

ParallelEdit

The real-world parallel is found the Japanese iaido.
