A Kaiken

Kaiken was a long, slim aiguchi. [1]

Lady's weapon Edit

Non-samurai-ko noblewomen often kept a kaiken to defend their honor and body against assailants. When besieged by a superior army, many loyal wives and daughters used it to perform jigai, a less painful type of seppuku done by slitting the throat. [1]
