A wooden hand is an artificial body part that acts as a replacement for a pawn's natural hand. A medieval prosthetic, wooden hands have a part efficiency of 60%, therefore one wooden hand on an otherwise healthy pawn provides 80% manipulation, while having two wooden hands provides 60% manipulation.

Terrible, but better than no hand, or a hand missing 4 fingers. If only the hand is missing, it better to use this than a full prosthetic arm.
