Product Information & Size Chart

Tessen Muji - Japanese steel war fan

Made in Japan

Materials: Steel, bambou, hard Japanese paper

Size: 8 sun (24.2 cm) or 1 shaku (30.3 cm)

Weight: 8 sun : 180 g  /  1 shaku 240 g

This Tessen, traditional Japanese war fan, consists of a matte black steel and blackened bamboo frame covered mounted with traditional Japanese white paper.

The Tessen was typically worn by samurai when no other weapon was allowed. They are still used today by some Koryu having developed fighting techniques using this fan.

In Aikido, the fan was used by the founder Morihei Ueshiba to demonstrate some of the principles of aikido. Morihei Ueshiba was also trained in "Tessen Jutsu", the art of fighting in the fan of war.
Upon first touch, the steel Tessen feels surprisingly heavy, and it is only then that one can capture the difficulty of using such an object as a weapon.

Delivered wrapped in traditional purple cloth, inside a traditional Japanese box.
