weapon (melee)

Level 4
Gnosis 6

A klaive is a ritual dagger of the Garou. Klaives are rare weapons for they are made of silver, and their manufacture and use are deadly to Garou. A klaive is about as big as a Bowie knife. A Garou who carries a klaive loses one point from his effective Gnosis rating (see Silver, pg 198, core book).

A War-spirit is usually bound into the klaive, allowing the weapon to inflict aggravated damage upon non-Garou foes. Without the spirit, a klaive does not inflict aggravated damage. However, a Garou does not need to attune a klaive that has no spirit in it.

Pulling a klaive on another Garou is considered a grave action for a klaive duel is most often a duel to the death. Nonetheless, klaive duels among Garou are becoming increasingly common as the wilds dwindle and tribal friction grows.

The difficulty to attack with a klaive is 6, and it inflicts Strength +2 damage. Because it is a silver weapon, Garou may not soak this damage.
