In the old times in Japan some specially made tobacco pipes with sufficiently heavy contraction were used as suitable self defense weapons in everyday life by both samurai and commoners. "Kenka kiseru" in Japanese means "fight pipe". Usually this type of smoking pipes had brass mouthpiece, bamboo or metal stem and brass bowl. In later period pipe's mouthpiece and bowl were adorned by fine engraving and were made from silver.
