Battle forgers are not only masters of creating masterwork items made of metal, but also of fashioning masterwork arms and armor of every

 kind. When a battle forger crafts weapons, armor, or shields, he can infuse them with a tiny fraction of his own inherent martial power—this enables the creation with powerful effects, but also binds the effects to the creator. When using Craft (armorsmithing), Craft (weaponsmithing), or another required Craft skill to create a masterwork mundane item, a battle forger gains a competence bonus equal to his battle forger level on the Craft check. In addition, a battle forger can use Craft (armorsmithing) or Craft (weaponsmithing) to identify magical arms and armor as if using detect magic. He must hold the weapon or armor for 1 round to make such a check. A battle forger can employ his mystical martial energies to convert a non-masterwork weapon, suit of armor, or shield into its masterwork equivalent. In so doing, a normal sword becomes a masterwork sword, a suit of leather armor becomes a masterwork suit of leather armor, and so on at a phenomenal rate. A battle forger can transform a number of non-masterwork item weapons, armor, or shields into masterwork items a number of times each day equal to his Constitution modifier.
