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 Battle Sai has a similar appearance to a regular Sai, however it is about the size of a Shortsword.
You can use the Weapon Finesse feat to apply your Dexterity modifier instead of your Strength modifier to attack rolls with a battle sai sized for you, even though it isn’t a light weapon for you. You can’t wield a battle sai in two hands in order to apply 1-1/2 times your Strength bonus to damage.
Like a sai, you gain a +4 bonus to disarm attempts.
The battle sai shares weapon proficiency with the sai. Likewise it is also a monk weapon.
