This weapon can be employed as though the wielder were unarmed: the wielder benefits from feats such as Deflect Arrows or Snatch Arrows (although he can redirect attacks but not catch them if he has no hands free), and a monk treats the blade as a monk weapon for use in his flurry of blows. Ki Intensifying: allows the weilder to use her special ki attacks through the weapon as though they were unarmed attacks. These attacks include the monk’s ki strike, quivering palm, and the Stunning Fist feat. The save DC for ki abilities used through the weapon increases by half the enhancement bonus of the weapon (minimum 1). After a successful strike with a ki intensifying weapon, the wielder can spend 1 ki point as a swift action to perform a combat maneuver to bull rush, disarm, reposition, or trip as a free action without provoking attacks of opportunity. Any bonuses or penalties applicable to the weapon attack also apply to this combat maneuver check. The wielder cannot move from her space as a part of the chosen maneuver. ────┤ Conditional Skill and Synergies ├──── +20 on Acrobatics checks made to jump [Base Speed] ────┤ Language (x1) ├──── Common ────┤ Description for the Magical Items Worn ├──── Jingasa of the Fortunate Soldier: This conical iron jingasa, or war hat, grants the wearer a +1 luck bonus to AC.
