The blades of vengeances have fallen swiftly. The shinobi are no more as 'Absolute Justice' has returned...now, it is the Samurai that rule the Five Major Nations!
But at what cost? Have they become the very thing that they despised the most...? Heroes and villains seem to change roles every day, but one thing is for certain - we yearn for our freedom, for days gone by where we flew the skies unhindered.
So, we've had some recent sales and we'd like to give you, our faithful buyers, a chance to acquire some power before we ship these babies off-continent. While their prices might be a little steep, you can bet your last Ryo that they're well worth it.
Please, post here if you would like to purchase. Players have 24 hours after a "purchase post" to supersede the posted price. The "bidding" will continue until either one buyer quits, or misses their chance to re-bid.
Players must have the amount of Ryo they are bidding.

Rank: S. Type: Sword (Whip). Blade Length: Four feet. Handle Length: One foot.
The particularly strange claymore appears to be as unique as the role it plays would suggest. Every half foot portion of the weapon is segmented, broken into a total of eight pieces that normal fit together very neatly, not unlike a standard sword. However, with a single handseal, the user can release the segments which extend and whip at the whim of thin steel wires binding them together with their subordinate segments (see image). When extended, the blades increase their reach about four times their natural length (20 feet).
As stated in the special note, the blade must come in direct contact with the jutsu to negate its effects. Techniques that hold no physical substance (I.E genjutsu and things like that) are unaffected by the blade's ability. Furthermore, the ability to negate the jutsu stems from the chakra it automatically takes from the user, equivalent to the opposing technique.
Hebi is extremely corrosive to sources of chakra. The blade is capable of flat out negating any and all sources of chakra it comes in direct contact with. The blade can be used to stem jutsu as they approach, negating their force, then form, and finally nature as though they never had any to begin with. The blade itself will not affect targets when cut on any significant level unless the blade remains in direct contact for extended periods of time (three posts).
Unfortunately, the blade's unique chakra nature completely negates any chakra usage by the user while the sword is in possession, as well. This does not require the weapon to be drawn in hand. It simply requires that Hebi be anywhere in physical possession. The user is not able to tap into any chakra-oriented attacks, such as ninjutsu, fuuinjutsu, genjutsu, or even some taijutsu (such as hien).
The user is still subject, however, to external sources of chakra affecting their person.
The weapon itself is the biggest drawback to the user, limiting their abilities to purely taijutsu-orientated assaults and defenses. More basic ninjutsu such as the academy techniques, or shunshin no jutsu are still applicable; however, anything beyond that point is rendered useless.
It should also be noted that Hebi's negating ability is not an area effect, but rather a single-target application. It would not be able to negate wide-scale attacks or supplementary techniques, such as baku suishouha, kirigakure no jutsu, or techniques of similar size.
Finally, when elongated, Hebi will function in an identical manner to Sword Hunter Chou's final blade from Rurouni Kenshin.
