As a katar is just a specific type of punching dagger, consider the knife master archetype to change those sneak attack dice from d6 to d8 with it.
While they have a dex penalty, it doesn't neccessarily mean that you 'have' to go dex build. It is possible to get 16/14/14/10/10/9 on a 20 pt build- not great, but it has the same attack bonus as an 18 str build (due to size bonuses), and you only lose out on a bit of damage.
This could help them keep up the CMB if you need to do maneuver stuff without spending feats.
So it might be good to have the option for some slayers.
I agree I did pretty much this exact thing but went into Brawler Snakebite Striker after three lvls. Boosted feint so as to get sneak attack dmg as often as possible and upping punching dagger base damage as well.
