Form Mind Blade

Benefit: You are now skilled at forming your psionic energy as a physical weapon. As a move action, you can create a semisolid blade composed of psychic energy distilled from your own mind. The blade is identical in all ways (except visually) to a short sword of a size appropriate for you. For instance, a Medium character materializes a Medium mind blade that can be wielded as a light weapon which deals 1d6 points of damage (19-20/×2). Characters who are smaller or larger than Medium create mind blades identical to short swords appropriate for their size, with a corresponding change to the blade’s damage. The wielder of a mind blade gains the usual benefits to his attack roll and damage roll from a high Strength bonus.

The blade can be broken (it has hardness 10 and 10 hit points); however, you can simply create another on your next move action. The moment you relinquish your grip on the mind blade, it dissipates. A mind blade is considered a magic weapon for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction. You can use feats such as Power Attack orCombat Expertise in conjunction with the mind blade just as if it were a normal weapon. You can also choose mind blade for feats requiring a specific weapon choice, such as Weapon Specialization (mind blade). Powers or spells that upgrade weapons can be used on a mind blade.

Even in places where psionic effects do not normally function (such as within a null psionics field), a character can attempt to sustain your mind blade by making a DC 25 Concentration check. On a successful check, you maintain your mind blade for a number of rounds equal to your ranks in Concentration before your need to check again. On an unsuccessful attempt, the mind blade vanishes. As a normal materialize action (usually a move action) on your turn, you can attempt a new Concentration check to rematerialize your mind blade while he remains within the psionics negating effect. When you take this feat you gain Concentration as a class skill. You are always proficient with your own mind blade.
