Due to the Tuchean's natural sailing ability it is no surprise that
they would develop a hooked knife. Traditionally this knife was used
by sailors to make cutting rope, and ship rigging easier. The rope
was placed where the knife bent making a clean quick cut much easier then
more conventional knives. The hook knife makes gutting fish and other
sea creatures that make up the mainstay of the Tuchean diet much easier
as well. The hook knife is not, however, merley used for peaceful
activities. It makes an excellent in fighting weapon, doing deadly
slashes and ofting catching an opponent in the side slicing him wide open.
The hook knife, is only single edged making stabs with the weapon, ineffectual
at best. The blade measures slightly under a foot, and like most
knives lacks a hand guard, however it is still favored by Tuchean sailors,
over the dirk which tends to be favored by Republic sailors. This
makes the weapon extremely rare in Iridine, as Tuchea and the Republic
are still on bad terms after the recent war. The only store that
carried the weapon recently went under, meaning the only way to obtain
it is through wandering merchants.
Tuchean hook knives are available at:
No where, the foreign weapon store is no longer open, and thus the must
be obtained at custom item events.
