I have 2 people in my school learning a bladed fan form and they would like to obtain fans with actual blades. The closest we can find are the ones ranging from $20-$60 that are just hand fans with metal spokes.

Does anyone here know where we can get fans with actual blades on them. They can be blunted but with the actual blades, they are weighted differently and will work better on this form.

I don't think such a weapon ever existed outside of fiction. To my knowledge, Tessen had metal spokes, and were primarily used in more to block attacks, or as clubs (and for cooling oneself, of course.)

Oh interesting. The only reason I'm looking is because I was asked. The form is not mine so I hadn't researched the history. I did find some traditional Iron Tessen's on a site that are made in what they claim to be the old world traditional manner, and I sent those over, but I'll pass on this information as well.

Time to do some reading on this subject.
