Sword, Tiger Hook
A tiger hook sword is the size of a longsword, but the first quarter of the blade is curved forward like a fish-hook. The hilt comes to a sharp point, and an outward pointing crescent blade serves as a hand guard and striking surface.
A tiger hook sword grants a +2 bonus on opposed attack rolls made to disarm an opponent (including the roll to avoid being disarmed if such an attempt fails).
You can make trip attacks with it, and you gain a +2 bonus to trip attempts made with the weapon. If you are tripped during your own trip attempt, you can drop the tiger hook sword to avoid being tripped.
Monks are not automatically proficient with the tiger hook sword, but if they take the feat Exotic Weapon Proficiency (tiger hook sword), they can use the tiger hook sword when making attacks with their flurry of blows ability.
