Long ago, it was said of a powerful swordsman that roamed the wilderness, armed with a massive sword said to be the living embodiment of a shark. While not a full blown shinobi, he was once a sword master who hailed from the coast, and was deadly both on the land and in the water. While he was extremely skilled in his own right, it is told that his true power came from his blade, transforming his normal human body into one of a shark. Mixed with characteristics of both a human and a shark, he was renowned for his deadly skill. A monster with blue skin, they called him, armed with razor sharp teeth and even fins that allowed him to navigate the sea. While he himself was renowned, the blade was what was truly remarkable. Rumor has it that the sword made a pact with its owner, giving him its power in exchange for chakra. The sword ate chakra, according to the tales, and lived off of it like a living creature. Depictions and drawings show a massive blue weapon, unlike any blade before seen. Its blade was made of scales, rigged and sharp, able to slice things like a ribbon. It was even said to grow larger the more chakra it consumed. While both the blade and its wielder were legendary, they eventually vanished. It is presumed the shark like sword master died, and the weapon itself faded from history, lost to time. Many adventurers and dungeon delvers have set out to find this powerful blade, in an attempt to use it for their own, however no one to this day has been able to locate the Samesada.
Description: Samehada is a large sword, roughly as tall as a full-grown man. Though usually wrapped in bandages, Samehada's construction is atypical in that its actual blade is comprised from a series of downward-facing scales running along the entirety of its length until its hilt, at the base of which is a small skull. Samehada grows larger in proportion to the amount of chakra it absorbs, causing its scales to become so long that they ultimately resemble shark fins and its mouth, located at the tip of the blade, to become even more pronounced with visible teeth. Keeping Samehada wrapped in bandages apparently helps to inhibit this growth to a certain extent.
Function: Like most swords, the Samehada can cut like a blade, however instead of normal clean slices, it delivers rigged cuts, flaying the skin in several locations. It is considered extremely sharp and able to peel the skin right off of a human.
