What is it?

JMH will *hate* this.

One of the more recent acquistions for the Arsenal. Appropriate to the collection.

Mystery Item

Any takers?

Update: We need a hint. This is a toughie - I deliberately took the pic minus a key piece of data (which would have made it waaaay to easy for you grognards - I know you want a challenge).

Length: Approximately 9 inches/22.8 cm/0.001136 furlongs/0.7544 shyaku/6.858 cun. Diameter: Approximately 1.5 inches/3.8 cm/0.0001894 furlongs/0.1257 shyaku/1.143 cun. That gives you a sense of scale. Material: Steel.

Update: Time for another hint. It's a reproduction, not an orginal. And made of much better material than the original. It's open at both ends, but is *not* a tube.
