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.

The smallsword is similar to the rapier in many respects, but with a hollow, triangular blade, allowing for reduced weight at the cost of durability. Primarily used for fencing and dueling, these swords are popular with nobility and intricately decorated, masterwork smallswords are often given to senior officers as a sign of rank. Smallswords usually have hilts with knuckle-guards, side-rings and quillons. As it is a light weapon, you can use the Weapon Finesse feat to apply your Dexterity modifier instead of your Strength modifier to attack rolls with a smallsword.
