Parrying Dagger 10 gp 1d2 Piercing 3 lb Light, finesse, special

Also called a main-gauche, a dagger with a slightly longer and broader blade than usual, with a dull edge and sharpened tip, and an unusually long crossguard. It is used as a defensive side arm in dueling and fencing.

You gain a +1 bonus to AC while holding the parrying dagger, and it is not considered to be a weapon for the purpose of features such as the dueling fighting style. When you make an attack with the parrying dagger, you do not gain those benefits until the start of your next turn.

Parry: If an attack misses you by 5 or more points you can use your reaction to parry the attack giving you advantage or the enemy disadvantage on the next attack on the target you parryed. For example you have an 18 AC (with the dagger) and the enemy attacks you and roll an 13 or lower you can use your reaction to parry the attack and gain advantage on your next attack or give the enemy disadvantage on theirs. If an enemy misses you by 10 or more points you can use your reaction to parry the attack and make an attack of opportunity with advantage and give yourself advantage or the attacker disadvantage on their next attack. For example if you have an 18 AC (with the dagger) and the attacker attacks and rolls and 8 or lower you can use your reaction to parry the attack and make an attack of opportunity with advantage as well as give yourself advantage or the attacker disadvantage on their next attack.
