The Ultimate test of the sword maker was to manufacture weapon varients of the tessen. Although these are not a blade concealed in another object as the blade protrudes from the laquered paper technically they are banned under that act of parliment. In feudal japan a sword smith would manufacture tessen almost like a buisness card to show his ability the greater quality his tessen the greater quality his katana would be. I have previously seen a tessen and it was still razor sharp and was still vibrant as if brand new when infact it was 300 years old. One person suggested that if we enter europe and the euro as what brussels is trying to get us to do the law changes we would have to do in order to maintain this would allow us to have these items and flick and butterfly knives available again it was a oppinion though not a fact a possibility. I hope it does cause that so collections can become more complete just hope that the government puts prohibitive tax on them to keep them in collecters and sensible peoples hands over idiots who caused them to be banned in the first place.
