The three-section staff, or sansetsukon is comprised of three wooden rods, each about 2 feet long, connected by metal rings or rope. An adaptable weapon, it can be used at length with whip-like sweeps, at mid-range like a flail, or like paired batons for close-in fighting.
The three-section staff grants you a +1 bonus to AC while you wield it in both hands. To gain this benefit, you need not attack with the three-section staff, but you must be proficient with it.
The three-section staff can be treated as a two-handed weapon.
The secondary end of the three-section staff counts as an off-hand weapon.
