It is impossible to obtain by conventional methods, however it is not hard to get:

  1. The easiest way is wishing for it at a fountain for 140 coins.
  2. Polymorphing a gnomish digger, thus making it drop its weapon.
  3. "Taming" a gnomish digger and looting it after it's dead. However the digger won't follow you unless mounted by a gnome.
  4. Polymorphing yourself into a Nymph and stealing it, or telling your pet Nymph or Monkey to steal it.
