A tail scythe consists of a long, curved blade that is designed to be strapped to a serpentine tail. In fact, the weapon is usable only by creatures possessing such an appendage, since it does not have a handle that lends itself to a humanoid hand. The design of the tail scythe focuses tremendous force on the sharp point while still allowing devastating slashes with the blade edge.
Because of a tail scythe's shape, you can also use it to make trip attacks. However, if you are tripped during your own trip attempt, you cannot drop the tail scythe to avoid being tripped. Donning or removing a tail scythe takes 1 round with the benefit of hands or assistance, or 3 rounds without.
