The Yari was an essential battlefield weapon of the Samurai in feudal Japan and took great skill to use and maneuver, due to its length and size. This Rattan Wrapped Yari piece is modeled after the su-yari or "straight-spear" design. The functional blade is forged in T-10 high-carbon steel and is triangulated and double-edged with a deep fuller on the flat side of the blade. Differential tempering results in a clear hamon on each edge. The tangs are long to absorb the shock of a blow. The shaft (ebu) is finished in a deep black lacquer and has a flattened side at the bottom section for blade orientation. The one-piece staff construction reinforces the durability of the spear. This version of the Yari features a shorter (11") blade, making for a faster weapon.This Japanese Yari also features a rattan wrapped section at the upper grip, making this a visually stunning piece.
