Long Description

This dangerous-looking weapon comprises a four feet long, flexible length of razor-sharp steel and simple hilt on either side of a straight crossbar. The flexibility of the blade means that it would be capable of launching whip-like slashing attacks, although it would take a considerable amount of skill to control it such that one does not lose an eye or an ear on the backswing. It appears to be sufficiently flexible to wear as a belt when not in use.

Appraises As

The steel urumi is about four feet long and about an inch wide. It is made of watered steel and could be used as a weapon of type misc.


Unlike the seven-bladed version, the single and double bladed urumis can be worn as a belt.

You slip a steel urumi around your waist as a belt.
You pull the steel urumi from its place around your waist as a belt.
You remove the steel urumi.

Be aware that all urumi's require fighting.special.weapon  research If this has been marked on a page, it's because there was something that probably isn't known, that the person who edited the page thinks could be found out. Perhaps you could figure this thing out, and be famous evermore.  to avoid self inflicted damage, that goes through shields, with every strike.
