Blowpipes were often disguised as flutes

A Blowpipe, or fukiya in Japanese, was a weapon used to fire small blowpipe darts that could be coated with poison. This weapon can have lethal abilities if used by an expert, and can be fired by blowing a short and fast stream of air through the pipe.

Since it made almost no noise, the hiding place of the user wasn't threatened. Blinding powder could also be fired through a fukiya.

The Bansenshukai ninja manual recounts the technique of using a blowpipe to see in a dark room. The shinobi would fire a dart with a small charge of gunpowder that ignites, illuminating the inside of a room for a second.
