The Tekkan or "iron sword" (Tetsu-ken/tetto) is a Japanese weapon, an iron truncheon, and could closely resemble a wakizashi sized sword with a blunt iron blade or they could be a cast iron version of a hachiwari (hachiwara).

Tekkan became very popular during the Edo period with wealthy merchants and farmers, since such people were denied by law from carrying or possessing swords or other edged weapons. The tekkan, bearing no edge, had always been permitted by law.[1]
