Hook Sword 25 gp 1d6 slashing 2 lb. Light, special

This is a weapon with a curved blade in a shape of a hook, a bladed guard and a knife tip on his handle. Also known as heaven and earth sword and tiger hook sword, these are weapons made to be used in pairs, with hooks useful to trip opponents and trap weapons.

Special:Trip. When trying take the Shove action while wielding this weapon, you can make an attack roll with your weapon instead of a Strength (Athletics) check.

Special:Trap. While wielding one hook sword in each hand, you can try to trap an opponent weapon. When a creature misses you on an attack with a melee weapon, you can use your reaction to make a grapple attempt against the attacker. The target may end this grapple by releasing their weapon. While grappling your opponents weapon, you can't make attacks against them with the hook swords.

Special:Link. While wielding one hook sword in each of your hands, you can link them together as a bonus action until the end of your turn. They gain the reach property, and their damage die becomes a d4. Due to the concentration necessary to effectively wield linked hook sword, this still counts as wielding two weapons.
