Straight Razor, Variant (3.5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
|Small||3gp||1d4 (Default)||0.2 lb.||1|
The straight razor has been used as a torture and intimidation weapon, and is usually utilized by rogues, assassins, and thugs. Due to the small size and ease of concealment, the straight razor grants a +2 bonus to Hide and Sleight of Hand checks to conceal it. Since the straight razor was not intended for combat and is hard to use effectively, anyone with a Dexterity lower than 14 takes a -2 penalty on attack rolls, and a failed reflex save on a critical miss incurs 1d4 points of damage on the user. However, due to the extreme sharpness of the razor, the critical range and critical damage is larger, and a successful Critical Hit or Coup-de-Gras will do 2 points of damage per round due to trauma unless healed by a successful DC 15 heal check. In addition, when used as a tool of torture or intimidation, the straight razor grants a +2 bonus to Intimidate checks.
