Description and uses

The bagh-nakh is a fist weapon, meaning that it fits in the fist a bit like knuckle-dusters. The name means Tiger Claw because it not only looks like the claws of a wild beast but the wounds it creates look like those an animal would cause. It isn't particularly powerful because it has a much shorter reach than most bladed weapons. However it is a good weapon for assassins, thieves and muggers because it can be concealed in the hand until the attacker is in close quarters with the unsuspecting victim.

A character who is carrying bagh-nakh can pretend to be unarmed and does not need to justify carrying a weapon.

Real-life context

The weapon is believed to have first appeared in India, possibly used by guerrilla fighters in the 17th Century.
