A rod of Jade 3' in length with veins of gold twining through it.
Owned by Korvbeg, the Gnomish thief/alchemist, this rod appears to be made of pure jade that was mined from a vein that had deposits of gold in it. In spite of the fragile nature of jade, however, the CleverLever is (nearly) indestructible and actually quite flexible. Without any additional training, it may be used as a sap, even if the weilder is not proficient in that weapon. When employed thus, it inflicts 3x the weilder’s strength bonus in subdual damage.

11th Second Legacy …
In actuality, Korvbeg’s great deeds infused his favorite tool with arcane powers that reveal themselves to any adventurer who shows the proper spirit. Most notably, he pried open the door to a prison cell with it where his king had imprisoned the wives and children of political enemies in a fit of madness. After his deed, he began to notice that the nature of the rod became more malleable and allowed him to make much greater use of it.
