Using Chakra Flow, this technique requires a bladed weapon; by feeding chakra into the weapon, the ninja will increase the length and density of his blade to strike an enemy from several feet out of the physical blade's range. This is accomplished by creating an invisible extension of chakra that shapes into an edge that functions like the normal blade itself.

An addition-line ninjutsu that augments the killing power of a blade — like a kunai or sword — by flowing chakra into it. The materialised chakra is shaped like a blade, that cuts up everything it touches. The density of the chakra is so high it becomes visible.

Seeing the blade, the opponent may misjudge how far they need to move to avoid an incoming strike and thereby still be cut even if they manage to avoid the metal portion of the blade. The chakra-enhanced blades are strong and sharp enough to strike through solid rock or cut through iron. This technique works best with elemental chakra, especially with [[wind release|wind]] chakra for offensive cutting power.

An addition-line ninjutsu that augments the killing power of a blade — like a kunai or sword — by flowing chakra into it. The materialised chakra is shaped like a blade, that cuts up everything it touches. The density of the chakra is so high it becomes visible. It is possible to alter the attack range of the weapon by adjusting the amount of chakra put into the blade. Seeing through the movements of this technique is a difficult task.

The chakra-enhanced blades are strong and sharp enough to strike through solid rock or cut through iron. This technique works best with elemental chakra, especially with wind chakra for offensive cutting power.

Trivia

  • The Flying Swallow is a shōgi piece used in a large-board variant called taikyoku shōgi, which is possibly the most challenging chess-like game in existence, with over 400 pieces of more than 200 types on either side.
  • There may have been a mistake with this techniques classification as the second databook calls it a ninjutsu in its description, but classifies it as a taijutsu.
