The most widespread of all aloi, this is literally a false dewclaw . The blade, from six to 10cm long, mounts on the palm of the hand to enable a human to simulate traditional Aslan combat. To be effective, the wielder must use strokes similar to those used by racial Aslan. These devices are unnatural to humans, and are no match for Aslan who can manipulate their living claws with dexterity unmatchable by aloi. Because of this deficiency, blade weapons more suited to the human hand are used in many places.
