Sword String Violin

Price 3,150 gp; Slot none; CL 4th; Weight 5 lbs.

Aura faint enchantment

This beautifully sharp masterwork violin is lined with sharp metal strings that seem to sing when played. Despite being a violin, it is also treated as a +1 club which deals slashing and bludgeoning damage and has a critical range of 19/20 with a x2 critical multiplier. If the wielder of this weapon is also wielding a light one-handed slashing weapon, they may use it to play the violin as though it was a bow (not the weapon). In addition, if the light one-handed slashing weapon is at least of masterwork quality, it gains any enchantments that the sword string violin has and is treated as a club for the purpose of feats and abilities which specifically apply to clubs (such as Weapon Focus [club]).

Finally, if the wielder attacks with only the sword string violin or both a one-handed slashing weapon and the sword string violin in the same round, they can also play the violin as a free action (being able to draw and sheath a bow to play this instrument as a part of the action needed to play it), which may allow them to continue or begin a bardic performance.

The strings of the sword string violin can be changed out with other types of metals, allowing it to bypass certain damage resistances, treating it as a club for the costs to do so.
