What is the hook sword?
The Hook sword aka (twin hooks, fu tao, tiger head hook, etc). The sword itself doesn't look very practical but in the right hands can be a deadly weapon. The sword originated in China and used by Wushu weapons routines and northern styles of Chinese martial arts but has been picked up by southern styles.
In most cases, a two-hand style of fighting is use with the hook sword. All parts of the sword are sharpened except for the part you hold. The Hook's at the end of the sword can be interlocked and swinging around for more reach which increases Force but has to be slowed down to get back the two hand style of fighting. The hook can also be used for pulling down your opponent sword or Both swords can you use to lock off opponent sword.
