The obscure word of the week is whiffle

This week’s obscure English word is whiffle.

It means the sound made by a sword whipping through the air.

To me it is somehow disconnected from the action. Whiffle is such a fluffy sort of word. Not the kind of word that might then be followed by one such as ‘thunk’, ‘clang’, or, potentially, ‘splurch’.

Your challenge: write a sentence or two in the comments using this word.
