1. See Damage Increases by Size to calculate the damage for a weapon larger than Medium or smaller than Small.
2. Weight figures are for Medium weapons. A Small weapon weighs half as much, and a Large weapon weighs twice as much.
3. When two types are given, the weapon is both types if the entry specifies "and", either type (player's choice at time of attack) if the entry specifies "or", or each end of the double weapon is a different type if the entry specifies "/".
4. The hp value given is for Medium armor, weapons, and shields. Divide by 2 for each size category of the item smaller than Medium, or multiply it by 2 for each size category larger than Medium.
A lajatang is a rare and unusual double weapon found only in the hands of martial artists skilled in its use. It consists of a three to five foot shaft with a crescent blade fitted at each end. Most lajatangs have barbs sticking out from the edges to maximize effectiveness. It is used in the same fashion as a two-headed halberd, by impacting the enemy and rake his body for extensive wounds. The lajatang may be considered a cousin of the more traditional wooden quarterstaff.
Special: A lajatang can be used to make trip attacks. If you are tripped during your own trip attempt, you can drop the lajatang to avoid being tripped.
