All the following are class features of the Mental Blade:
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Mental Blades do not gain additional weapon or armor proficiencies.
Monk Abilities: A Mental Blade's odd class levels stack with his monk levels for the purpose of determining his unarmed damage, bonuses to Armor Class, unarmored speed and his Flurry of Blows ability.
Soulknife Abilities: A Mental Blade's even class levels stack with his soulknife levels for the purpose of determining his Mind Blade's enhancement bonus.
Bladed Fist (Su): At 2nd level, a Mental Blade's Mind Blade adapts to the character's hands, allowing it to gain bonuses to hit as though it were an unarmed attack. All abilities that grant a bonus to hit with unarmed weapons but not Mind Blades stack with the normal bonuses to the Mind Blade's attack bonus.
Improved Bladed Fist (Su): At 5th level, a Mental Blade's Mind Blade and his mental discipline meld together, allowing him to use his monk abilities with his Mind Blade. The Mind Blade is treated as a monk weapon.
Greater Bladed Fist (Su): At 8th level, a Mental Blade's Mind Blade is connected to his mental fortitude. Even in areas where psionic effects do not normally function (such as a null psionics field), he may sustain his Mind Blade while conscious. He only needs to make the standard Will save to materialize his Mind Blade while in the psionics negating effect.
Bonus Psionic Feat: At each 3 class levels, the Mental Blade gains a bonus psionic feat.
Multiclass Note: A monk who becomes a Mental Blade may continue advancing as a monk while his Mental Blade level is higher than his Soulknife level.
