Analyze

You analyze your shadowy silk fan and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions, but the creator has stated that "The item has restrictions on changing the noun."

The creator has also provided the following information:
 You sense that any merchant may alter this fan, though it must remain a "fan," and alterations must make sense for wrist-worn items.

Currently, you are able to OPEN, CLOSE, PROD, PUSH, TURN, POKE, COVER, TAP, TILT, PULL, NUDGE, RAISE, RUB, TOUCH, WAVE, WEAR, and REMOVE the fan. You may also find it quite the thing for sheathing a dagger and giving it a FLIP back into your hands.  Your demeanor in some of these actions may make a difference.
