Troll-claw

The troll-claw is a brawling weapon that is a larger, heavier version of the tiger-claw. The troll-claw is usually constructed with longer, heavier claws sometimes reaching lengths in excess of six inches. Given the weight of the blades, and the need for carry-through to lend inertia to the weapon's impact, the troll-claw is often built with parallel braces which run along the wielder's forearm. Although able to do effective damage against unarmored foes, the troll-claw is substantially slower than the tiger-claw and is still only marginally effective against plate.

Alternate Names

  • bladed claw
