Hook swords (otherwise called Shuanggou or Gou) are relatively modern Chinese weapons that were predominantly utilized by civilians, but traditionally associated with the Shaolin Monks of Mount Shaoshi, China. They consist of a long, straight blade that ends in a hook, and a hand-guard not unlike a butterfly knife that serves both as protection for the weapon hand and as a secondary weapon. As such, they are considered double weapons.
Special: You may attach the swords by the hooks as a move action, allowing you to treat both weapons together as a reach weapon. Joining the swords is a swift action instead of a move action, if you have Weapon Focus with relation to hook swords, or if you have a base attack bonus of +8 or higher.
Due to the design of the weapon, it affords a +2 bonus to trip attacks and disarming.
