Iron Baton, Iron Fan

Passed down through the Mogami family, these two implements of warfare were used by Yoshiaki himself. The iron baton is 86.5 cm in length and weighs 1750 grams, making it as heavy as two swords. Inscribed on the surface of the baton is “Descendant of the Seiwa Emperor, Lord of Yamagata in Dewa, the Monk with Hair, Yoshiaki”, indicating Yoshiaki’s lineage and honorary title and attesting to his devout nature. Although the iron fan would originally have had a covering, this cover has been lost through the years, with only the iron spokes remaining. Weighing 575 g, this fan could be used not only as an actual fan, but also as an offensive weapon as well as for deflecting swords and arrows.(L)
