The Gunbai (or Samurai War Fan) was an instrument used by Samurai Officers (gashira); worn to show rank and used to command their samurai and ashigaru troops across the battlefield. The Gunbai was unique in the fact it was made from solid wood, or layered iron (tetsu) and wood with iron. Carried by the samurai or worn on the samurai armor, the Gunbai would represent the rank of the samurai as an officer. The Gunbai were typically family heirlooms, passed from father to son in succession. The Gunbai could also be used to help defend against sudden arrow or sword attacks.
