|This short, slender blade is between 1 to 2 feet long. It is primarily used as back-up weapon, to decapitate defeated enemies, or to commit seppuku (ritual suicide) as a matter of honor. In ancient times this type of blade was specifically worn by roaming champions and “samurai” and was intended to be paired with a katana. Together, this set of blades is referred to as a daisho. There is the image of a heron and a lily etched into the base of the rippled blade.
Ki Focus: The magic weapon serves as a channel for the wielder’s ki, allowing her to use her special ki attacks through the weapon as if they were unarmed attacks. These attacks include the monk’s ki strike, quivering palm, and the Stunning Fist feat (including any condition that the monk can apply using this feat).
Sword-saint: In addition to its more common properties, this weapon can be employed as though the wielder were unarmed: the wielder benefits from feats such as Deflect Arrows or Snatch Arrows (although he can redirect attacks but not catch them if he has no hands free), and a monk treats the blade as a monk weapon for use in his flurry of blows.
