A pair of chinese hook swords.

Hook swords are a Chinese weapons that were predominantly utilized by civilians, but traditionally associated with the Shaolin Monks of Mount Shaoshi, China. They consist of a long, straight blade that ends in a hook, and a hand-guard not unlike a butterfly knife that serves as protection for the weapon hand.

Special: You may attach the swords by the hooks as a move action, allowing you to treat both weapons together as a reach weapon.

If you have the Two-Weapon Defense feat and wield one hook sword in each hand, you receive a +2 shield bonus to AC instead of the usual +1.

Due to the design of the weapon, while dual weilded they afford a +4 disarming bonus. Additionally, the user can make trip attacks with the hook swords. If you are tripped during your own trip attempt, you can drop one of the hook swords to avoid being tripped.
