Keen was a magical effect that could be added to any bladed weapon, making it more deadly.[1]

CreationEdit

Applying the keen property required the spell keen edge. Only an edged or pointed weapon could be so enhanced.[1]

AbilitiesEdit

It made a weapon magically sharp, making the wielder more likely to inflict wounding, critical cuts.[1]

HistoryEdit

Keen magic such as this was first invented by the old noble houses of the elf realm of Cormanthyr. By 1372 DR, this legacy survived in the Cormanthyrian elfblades, keen longswords that carried the symbols of these houses.[2]
