The navaja know that sometimes the best tool for a job isn’t the biggest sword, or the heaviest hammer, but instead the fastest and sharpest knife. The navaja often delights in educating others in this truth.

Class Features

A navaja has the following class features.

Stick It Deep (Ex)

A navaja applies double his Strength bonus to damage when he attacks with a dagger, kerambit, kukri, punching dagger, starknife, or swordbreaker dagger.

This ability replaces armor training 1.

Pincushion (Ex)

When a navaja successfully attacks a creature with a weapon listed in the Stick it Deep class feature, he may opt to leave the blade sunk deep within the body of the enemy. For each blade affecting it, the creature suffers a -1 penalty to attack rolls and concentration checks, to a maximum penalty of -5.

A creature may expend a standard action to remove all blades affecting it. Doing so provokes attacks of opportunity but all blades drop to the ground in it’s space and it suffers no additional effects.

Alternatively, the creature may expend a swift action to remove all blades affecting it but it suffers 1 point of bleed damage for each weapon removed in this way. If it removes them in this way it does not provoke attacks of opportunity.

This ability replaces weapon training 1.
