This exotic weapon is a strap or glove fitted with spikes in the palm. It is favored both as a weapon and as a climbing tool by many inhabitants of the Underdark. Your opponent cannot use a disarm action to disarm you of a nekode, and an attack with it is considered an armed attack. A nekode is a special monk weapon, so a monk wielding it has special options. Using a pair of nekodes while climbing gives you a +1 circumstance bonus on Climb checks. This bonus stacks with the +2 bonus you get from using a climber's kit.
