You are both right- and left-handed.

Prerequisites: Two hands and either Dexterity 18 when taken as a Background feat as a 1st-level character or Dexterity 21, Deft Hands feat, and Two-Weapon Fighting feat when taken any other time as a General feat.

Benefit: You use your right and left hands with equal skill. You receive a +2 bonus to Sleight of Hand checks, and attack penalties to your offhand attacks are reduced by 4 (to a minimum penalty of -2).

Special: You may normally only take Background feats as a 1st-level character.
