Pull Blow [General, Fighter]
You can choose to leave your victims alive when they might otherwise die
When attacking with a weapon for which you have Weapon Focus, if you injure an opponent enough to take them below zero hit points you may pull your blow, dealing exactly enough damage to take them to -1 hit point. Furthermore, although unconscious their condition automatically becomes stable (not taking bleeding damage), rather than dying.
Imagine a master swordsman that cuts with such precision that they can wound exactly the amount they wish to by cutting "just so". The benefit of this feat over doing nonlethal damage is that you can make your decision after the fact and that creatures immune to nonlethal damage can effectively be subdued.
