The lajatang is a staff with a crescent-shaped blade at each end. It is common to Eastern cultures or any culture with a tradition of monks and martial artists.
A lajatang 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: a one-handed weapon and a light weapon. A creature using a double weapon in one hand, such as a human using a halfling lajatang, can't use it as a double weapon.
A monk using a lajatang can strike with her unarmed base attack, including her more favorable number of attacks per round, along with other applicable attack modifiers. The monk can only use her more favorable number of attacks per round with one end of the weapon. The halfling lajatang is for Small monks.
