You know there's something weird in the D&D multiverse when ... I have a "gameology-fu" of 4,  and carnivore has a 2.  ???

Flowing Blade + Titan Bloodline + one CPsi feat (ugh) = good stuff
Flowing Blade + Titan Bloodline + Reshape mindblade = better

How does the Healing Belt work? (I don't have MIC)

I don't really like the idea of having six dogs follow me around.

What makes titan bloodline so good? Power Attack and Improved Sunder are useess to a ranged combatant, and oversized weapon might not even do anything. Why not celestial bloodline, if I can get the ranged-only smite evil variant? That +1 Wis would be nice.
My work
The tier system in a nutshell:
[spoiler]Tier 6: A cartographer.
Tier 5: An expert cartographer or a decent marksman.
Tier 4: An expert marksman.
Tier 3: An expert marksman, cartographer and chef who can tie strong knots and is trained in hostage negotiation or a marksman so good he can shoot down every bullet fired by a minigun while armed with a rusted single-shot pistol that veers to the left.
Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.
Tier 1: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything and the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.[/spoiler]

it allows you to heal some damage .... uses charges that are renewed each day

dont think of them as "Dogs" per-se.... think of them as cheap expendable Commoners... who are Loyal and Brave, and are trained for Combat, and are Alert to danger... those are some of the uses for them.... there are many more

"titan bloodline"
--- 12th     Strength +1     +1 to natural armor     Use oversized weapon (Ex)2
As the titan special ability.
Oversized Weapon (Ex)
A titan wields a great, two-handed warhammer (big enough for Gargantuan creatures) without penalty.



A ~light weapon, something you can flurry with, and one hand easily, the size of a Titan's Maul.
The pre-carnivore being sneaky version, used a CPsi mindblade feat like the doublebladed doohicky.
Now it's a little bit more legit. And it's better with Atavist. So ...

Soulknife X / Titan Bloodline 3 / Uncanny Trickster 2 / Legacy Champ 2 / Illumine Soul 1
gets (x+3) + (1+3) + (1+3) levels of Soulknife abilities with +2 via IS (because of the way that class works with Bloodline),
which ~equals down 4 but up 8 levels equavalent, and +2 abilities more.
BAB sucks but so what.
Now throw in Atavist 1 and get (1+3) levels of that class's boost of Soulknife abilities, minus the one missing normal S level.

Probably don't need all of the bloodline/levels stacking, throw in Monk stuff, and Flurry.
If you have 5 attacks, that would eat up all of the Moves available via a Hustle Linked Hustle Twinned  custom item.
But you could Psychic Strike on each attack.

See where I'm going?
Which specific blade enhancements fit, is less important because of the Soulknifey Mind's Eye thingy for PsyWar.
It can use ANY enhancement, which is no fair, to poor little Soulknifes, but life ain't fair kid-psion.  :)
