The tiger-claw is a brawling weapon similar to the knuckle-duster but includes the addition of four large spikes - one at each knuckle. Advantages of the tiger-claw include its light weight and speed, plus it is one of the best brawling weapon choices against unarmored opponents. However, against more heavily armored targets it has very limited effectiveness.

The tiger-claw is one of several Brawling weapons suitable for use with unarmed combat attacks. When used in conjunction with unarmed combat, its function changes from a weapon to an item of equipment. Held in the attacker's hand, it provides a .075 damage factor bonus and a -15 Multiplier Modifier penalty to all Jab, Punch and Grapple attacks. Holding a tiger-claw in each hand will double the DF bonus and MM penalty.

Any additional properties, such as enchant bonus, flares or weighting, will be activated with these attacks.
