The Ultimate Combat FAQ has this to say:
Weapons: There are melee weapons in Ultimate Combat (pages 131 to 132) with a weight of "—". If these weapons are primarily metal (like the kerambit), how do you calculate the cost of creating mithral versions of these weapons?
Treat these weapons as 1/2 lb weapons for the purpose of creating a mithral version of the weapon.
Was it the intent of this ruling to allow people to actually save money on masterwork weapons?
Why would anyone ever get a masterwork kerambit (or any other light weight weapon), when they could get a mithral one for 50gp less that is also considered masterwork? Is every goblin, gnome and halfling expected to wield mithral daggers over masterwork ones now?
Shouldn't objects be treated as a minimum of 1 pound to avoid this incongruity? Please FAQ if you think this should be addressed.
