Keyhole Stiletto

Aura moderate transmutation CL 11th
Slot none; Price 23,002 gp; Weight 1 lb.

Description

This sturdy +1 ghost touch adamantine dagger can be used as a punch to destroy the workings of a lock or other mechanical device, granting a +2 bonus to Disable Device checks for that purpose, but leaving obvious signs of tampering. Its true usefulness becomes evident when wielded against force magic. The wielder of a keyhole stiletto ignores armor bonuses granted by a force effect (such as the mage armor spell or bracers of armor). Once per day, the user may whisper a command word to allow the stiletto to cut a single small hole in a force effect such as a wall of force or resilient sphere. The hole can be any shape, but the blade cannot cut a line longer than 3 feet or carve a circle wider than 1 foot.
