The spinning sword, or chattaval in Quori, is a whiplike weapon designed by the quori and made of multiple long strands of highly flexible steel. It is designed to aid a single skilled warrior against multiple foes.
A spinning sword has reach, so you can strike opponents 10 feet away with it. In addition, unlike most other weapons that have reach, it can be used against an adjacent foe.
The Weapon Finesse feat can be used with a properly sized spinning sword, even though it isn’t a light weapon. A spinning sword can’t be wielded in two hands to apply 1-1/2 times a character’s Strength bonus on damage rolls.
A spinning sword can be worn as a belt, its grip functioning as a buckle. A successful DC 15 Search check is required to discern that a spinning sword carried in this way is a weapon. If Sleight of Hand is used to conceal a spinning sword as a belt, the wearer gets a +6 circumstance bonus on the check.
