ifyou're referring to slashing grace:** spoiler omitted **needlessly restrictive/specific. only seems worth really considering for the sawtooth saber.
note that it doesnt work with light weapons, giving the impression that in paizo's mind it makes more sense to be able to dex-to-damage a dwarven waraxe than a dagger (and it shoots the 'iconic' rogue in the foot yet again because of it).
The part where it says it only works with one-handed weapons (which are different from light weapons as Jiggy said):
Are we sure that this meant the CATEGORY "one handed" and not "wielding your chosen weapon one-handed"?
Anyway- Isnt a Scimitar a one handed slashing weapon?
Fun fact, the majority of weapons that are in the one handed category and also deal slashing damage are not compatible with Weapon Finesse. So if you took Slashing Grace with a Scimitar, you would get strength to attack rolls and dexterity to damage.
The only compatible weapons are the Aldori Dueling Sword and the Whip if I recall correctly.
As an aside, if you are a Swashbuckler or a Daring Champion Cavalier, you have less issue as Slashing Grace allows you to treat the weapon as if it were a one-handed piercing weapon for class features, which then triggers the Swashbucklers Finesse class feature of the above two classes. That means Slashing Grace only *truly* works if you have at least one level in Swashbuckler or Daring Champion Cavalier, anyone else is paying for a feat that only partially works, and clunkily at that.
