Claw Razors


These masterwork wrist-length gauntlets cover the back of the hand and five fingers, ending in short claw-like razors. When used to make unarmed attacks, they function as brass knuckles, but do slashing or bludgeoning damage.

If worn by a skinwalker with a claw attack in bestial form, they grant a +1 enhancement bonus on claw attack rolls with that hand, and they change the weapon type from a natural weapon to a light slashing weapon with a critical range of 19-20/x2. Skinwalkers (and other humanoids with claw natural attacks) are proficient with this weapon; all others treat it as an exotic light melee monk weapon.

Claw razors can be enhanced like a masterwork weapon or forged of non-steel metals for the normal costs. While worn, the weapon’s razors impose a –2 penalty on all precision-based tasks involving that hand (such as opening locks). The listed cost of the item is for one hand. (Craft DC 25)
