Item Name: Sakenomi 酒飲み
Crafting Level: Master
Description: This sword is a very plain katana. An exceedingly simple curved, single-edged blade with a circular grip and a long handle to accommodate two hands. There is no beautiful filigree or etching upon the blade beyond five simple seals etched into the metal of the blade. The hilt is bound with plain black leather. It would be very easy to dismiss this blade as a simple, slightly lazy, apprentice's work unless studied with a knowledgeable eye.
There are five seals along the length of the blade that are linked together so that they can hold increasingly more powerful techniques. A single seal can hold indefinitely the equivalent power of a D-rank technique, two seals can hols a C-rank technique, three seals can be used to hold a B-rank technique, four seals will hold and A-rank and using all five will allow the wielder to seal within an S-rank technique. The wielder of the sword may store jutsu in any combination of power to fill the seals, up to the maximum of five. The wielder of the sword does not need to possess Fuuinjutsu in order to store or activate these techniques. The seals remain when the techniques are expended so that they may be used again, etched carefully into the blade. This sword grants the wielder the ability to claim all of a fallen foe's fame if they are slain by this sword. Umeno channeled a great deal of her own chakra into the creation of this special blade, infusing it with water and lightning chakra. Fire techniques are reduced by one rank when blocked by this weapon. Reduces the efficacy of all fire jutsu channeled by one rank. Increases the damage of lightning jutsu channeled by the user by one rank. Reduces the efficacy of all earth jutsu channeled by one rank. Any lightning jutsu requiring two swords may be used with just this single sword as the focus.
