A kukri is an uncommon advanced one-handed melee weapon that functions as a survival dagger with the wound critical hit effect.

Blade Training (Ex)

Tengu are trained from a young age in melee combat with bladed weapons. They are automatically proficient in one advanced or special melee weapon of their choice so long as that weapon has a blade, and they gain Weapon Specialization with that weapon at 3rd level.

Gifted Linguist (Ex)

Tengu learn two languages each time they take a rank in Culture rather than one language per rank.
