Went to Jim Breen's Japanese-English Dictionary Server and searched for hanshi. This is what came up. I had to delete the kanji and whatnot as it doesn't come across after being cut and pasted.

(n) feudal retainer or warrior

(n) half dead

(n) Japanese writing paper used for calligraphy

judge advocate

(n) block copy

block copy artist

(n) all but dead; half killed

(n) Hemiptera

(n,vs) reflection; reverberation;

reflex action

That probably doesn't help but it was fun looking for it

"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."
