Using their chakra or a ninja tool such as a war fan to manipulate or create an external source of wind, the user can create one to several blades of wind, which are capable of slicing through their target with ease. Temari and a group of tessenjutsu users from Sunagakure also used this technique as a means of countering a powerful, incoming torrent of wind.[2]
