You transform a simple or martial weapon into an equivalent improvised weapon. If the weapon has the masterwork quality, this quality is lost for the duration. This effect does not alter the weapon's shape or appearance in any way. For example, if this spell is cast on a kukri, masterwork mace, or trident, the items function as a butter knife, a table leg, or a pitchfork, respectively, but the items look no different than they did before the spell was cast.

Downgrade weapon counters and dispells refine improvised weapon.
