Sword Breaker 15 gp 1d4 piercing 2 lb. Light, Special

An advancement from the standard parrying dagger, the hilt has two sturdy tines adjacent and parallel to the blade. The slot formed between the blade and tine can be used to catch and "bite" (or grab) the opponent's blade.

Special. When a creature attacks you with a bladed weapon, you can use your reaction to attempt to catch that weapon in your sword breaker. Make a Dexterity (Sleight of Hand) check against the targets attack roll. If the result is greater than the attack roll, you grapple the attacker by catching its weapon.

The attacker may escape the grapple in the normal way, or by dropping the caught weapon. Similarly, the grapple ends if you drop the sword breaker. You can not attack with the sword breaker when you have grappled a creature this way.
