This vicious scrimshaw weapon is fashioned from large lengths of bone harvested from Huge creatures. Several hand-notches are carved all over the bone, while the rest is sculpted into spurs, blades, and polished nodules. Fighting with a kaua'koi is a high art, involving constantly switching grips to make the most of this versatile weapon. In many tribes, carving one's own kaua'koi is a right of passage marking a young Olman's mastery of war arts.
A kaua'koi is a double weapon. You can fight with it as if fighting with two weapons, but if you do, you incur all the normal attack penalties associated with fighting with two weapons, just as if you were using a one-handed weapon and a light weapon. A creature wielding a kaua'koi in one hand can't use it as a double weapon - only one end of the weapon can be used in any given round.
If proficient with a kaua'koi, you may choose the type of damage you deal with each attack.
