Actually, in case you are still curious about this topic, so long as you are okay using the Rokugan Campaign Settings for 3e, you can get 100% critical hit chance, or 120%. depending on how you look at it.
The scorpion clan has a feat that says that whenever you catch an enemy flatfooted, or in a situation where its Dex modifier to AC has been denied, your attack is an automatic critical threat.
Ergo, you also get the Scorpion clan feat that lets you feint in combat as a move action (instead of a standard action) and now you can use a 5' step to feint, then attack for an automatic critical threat attack.
If you get the right feat, you get +4 to confirm your critical, which means that you are already going upwards of 100% chance for crit. In fact, you are going upwards of a base 100% chance to hit.
Note, for extra hilariousness, the Scorpion clan also has a feat which raises your crit multiplier by x1 vs opponents who've had their Dex bonus to AC denied for whatever reason, and another which lets you feint for free to hide after every successful attack against enemies who had their dex bonus to armor denied for whatever reason.
Step 1. Walk to someone in the middle of the street, looking badass with your scythe on your shoulder.
Step 2. Surprise sneak attack! (not sure how much of a surprise it is considering you have a freaking scythe out. I recommend mixing this with liberal use of the Disguise skill to pass yourself off as a peasant).
Step 3. Free feint to hide. Ninja vanish!
Step 4. Wait for normal combat to start. Attack from hiding. Your enemy has its Dex bonus to AC denied, so free feint to hide.
Repeat at nauseum. Assuming he survived the 1st strike, of course.
And there's an Oriental Adventures Prestige Class, the Kensai, which raises your crit multiplier with your weapon of choice. Personally, my weapon of choice is a scythe, and my clan of choice is scorpion, whenever I feel like getting critical on someone.
Also remember, flanking is your friend. And you can also sneak attack from up to 30'. Sadly though, I doubt you can throw a scythe that far, and ranged weapons are just not as awesome.
Also, Bayushi's Method (A feat from, you guessed it, the Scorpion Clan, since the Bayushi's are its main family) gives you +1d6 extra damage whenever you hit an opponent that has been denied its Dex bonus to AC. You can take that feat up to 5 times. Just saying.
