5 minutes

As an action, a blade of your blood appears in your free hand and lasts for the duration. You create the blade as a magical dagger, katar, sai, sickle, greatsword, kama, kukri, longsword, scimitar, or shortsword.

The spell ends if you dismiss it on your turn (no action required), if you cast it again, or if you end your turn without the blade in your hand as the blood falls to the ground.

At higher levels

When you reach 9th level, you can make an attack with the blade as part of the same action to create it.
