The gourd that Gaara carries around with him is, in a way, his signature weapon. It is made of chakra-infused sand molded into the shape of a calabash gourd that he can alter into sand or back at will. He uses it to carry around the rest of his chakra-infused sand, which makes up his Ultimate Defense. Gaara usually never goes anywhere without this gourd and has only ever been seen without it while safe in the Hidden Sand Village(save for times when it has been destroyed). Should it be, Gaara can simply re-create it using more sand.
