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 swordplane is an impossibly-thin sword, which is strong despite its size. It is very light, and is designed to be paired with another weapon, possibly another swordplane. They are known as 'shield-dodgers' due to their users' ability to get around the shields of their enemies rather easily.
An opponent which has a shield bonus to AC doesn't receive it against attacks made by a swordplane if its user is proficient in it. Additionally, its flexibility gives it a +2 bonus on disarm attempts.
