Your character can attack, even without a weapon.  An unarmed attack inflicts a minimal amount of damage but can still be useful, particularily if you have yet to find a Scroll of Protect Weapon and have to deal with an acid mound or acidic jelly . An unarmed attack always does 1-2 damage with no bonuses from strength.

To become unarmed, simply remove your weapon.
