Swinging this blade imposes a -1 penalty to Armor Class to anyone who wields it due to the great weight of the blade which makes the wielder more vulnerable.
You may wield a Orc Battle-blade two-handed as a martial weapon.
Orc society only advances in order to gain an advantage against an enemy, whether a nearby tribe or another race, and these are usually military. The Orc Battle-blade is an example of Orc “ingenuity.” This blade is made of dense materials so that its blows carry more force. The weight of the blade makes this weapon difficult to swing around and so it is considered a symbol of great pride amongst Orcs to be able to wield an Orc Battle-blade.
