Function: Like most swords, this one is used for general stabbing and slashing. While being made out of steel, it is also able to be held in a way that can deflect or block oncoming attacks. Unlike other swords however, this one comes with flat spikes that jut out of the blade every couple of inches. These spikes serve two purposes, they aid in blocking attacks, able to catch other swords or weapons, but also adds to the cutting factor, making it a rough tear instead of a clean cut. These jagged spikes will tear and rip flesh, instead of cutting it.
Saw Edge: The user can spend 5 chakra and an action to use this ability. By sending chakra through the sword, the user will cause the chakra to course up and down the edge of the blade, flowing up and over the spikes built into the sword. This will cause the chakra to act like a chain saw, spinning up to the sword point on one side, and back down to the handle on the other side. This effectively turns the sword into a saw for the duration. While spinning the chakra makes it easier to rend flesh, tear into clothing and armor and even disarm other combatants. For every post after the one this ability was activated in, the user can spend an additional 5 chakra to keep the blade going, but does not require any additional actions.
Blood Bane: A unique ability of this blood is its capability to hold liquid in the groves of the spikes. Where the spikes meet the flat of the blade, a small pocket forms, allowing the sword to hold liquid. This means if the sword slices into someone, it can store a very small amount of blood in the pocket. While this is most often used for blood, it can also collect other liquids like water. Once a liquid is stored in this pocket, the user can then use an action to flick the blade in a specific manner. When flicked, the pocket will release the liquid in the direction of the flick. The blood can hold 6 pockets before it is full.
