The Yari by Paul Chen 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 piece is modeled after the su-yari or “straight-spear” design. The 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 textured black 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 features a long (16.75″) blade.
