japanese iron battle fan TESSEN, detail of engaving
Japanese Samurai often carried out special designed self-defense devices along with traditional two-katana set (daishyo). Folding fan Tessen (Gunsen) with iron ribs, had an important role among them.  Tessen was very acceptable in any situation thus leaving the samurai always armed with at least one very effective defensive weapon. Practice of Tessen-jitsu was considered sophisticated part of the classical Japanese martial art.
