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.

Only an adventurer could take a graceful and refined weapon requiring great precise dexterity and just upscale the whole thing. Sadly not only they did, but somehow it work.

A much much larger version of a bladed fan, it require a lot of strength to wield properly. For the overwhelming majorities, this is a unwieldy, rather fragile but razor sharp greatsword. For the practiced combatant the ability to adjust the blade width, it extremely sharp blade and large surface area can prove to be quite a boon. A gigas bladed fan can be used as a two-handed martial weapon without penalties.

The gigas bladed fan requires Str 13 to wield in the first place, with a -2 penalty on attack rolls. At Str 15, the penalty to attack rolls vanishes.

A creature with exotic weapon proficiency gain the ability to use the following special ability:

Bleeding Strike: Each strike of the gigas bladed fan cause 2 points of bleedout, a critical threat does an additional 2 points of bleedout while a confirmed critical hit cause instant bleedout (as if the struck creature took a number of bleedout point equal to it constitution score).

Dismember: A gigas bladed fan is capable of slashing limbs off with extreme ease, on a confirmed natural 20 you can roll one more time to confirm. If you confirm again, you remove a limb of your choice (such as arms or legs, but not the head), dealing 1d4 Con damage and applying appropriate penalties for the lost limb. If the second confirmation was a natural 20, you can choose to remove the head instead.

Gust of Wind: As the bladed fan ability, except it count as a bladed fan two size category larger for the purpose of determining the strength and area of the wind-effect.

If you wield two gigas bladed you can make two gust of wind, the area overlap it does not stack.

Razor Wind: When performing the gust of wind maneuvers you may make a single attack against one creature within the wind effect (you can make two attacks if you wield gigas bladed fan since you perform two gust of wind).

Alternatively you can deal automatic weapon damage plus your strength modifier (or any ability replacing it) to every creature affected by the wind effect, when you gain an additional attack granted by base attack bonus the damage dealt by the mass razor wind is multiplied (deal double damage at Bab 6, triple at bab 11 and etc).
