Description[edit]

The zetsurin is a one handed exotic weapon that resembles a katana without the tsuba. Also retaining the cost weight and so fourth of one. the only exception being the six inch thin bladed tanto sheathed within the saya (scabbard). (this blade retains the same attributes of a normal tanto.)

With the exotic weapon proficiency feat, the wielder increases the critical threat range to 18-20. Additionally, if the wielder uses the Zetsurin as a two-handed weapon, the critical damage multiplier is increased to x3.

You can use your weapon finesse feat to apply your Dexterity modifier instead of your Strength modifier to attack rolls with a katana.

  2. Unlike the additional cost, the increase the weapon's hardness and hit points are only gained from its enhancement bonus, not its special abilities.
