Handheld weapons that surround the fist with a blade, cutting wheels come in many varieties. A solid circle of metal that has one small area wrapped in leather as a handle is the basic style. The rest of the wheel is bladed and features protrusions for piercing and tearing at evenly spaced intervals. To protect the hand and aid in gripping, a bladed guard is forged just above the grip on the inside of the wheel. The kalashtar have taken the basic “wheel” form and created triangular weapons that their soulknives often mimic (though their blades have normal soulknife statistics).
Because of its size and protected grip, a cutting wheel grants a +2 bonus on opposed attack rolls to avoid being disarmed. A monk who is proficient with the cutting wheel can treat it as a special monk weapon.
