CAS Hanwei Yari
The Yari was an essential battlefield weapon of the
Samurai and took great skill to use and maneuver due to
its length and size. The Yari design is based on
originals dating to feudal Japan. The blade is forged in
T-10 high-carbon steel and 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 tang is long to absorb the shock of a blow and
the one-piece staff construction reinforces the
durability of the spear.
This yari is modeled after the su-yari or
"straight-spear" design. The shaft (ebu) is finished in
a deep black lacquer and have a flattened side at the
bottom section for blade orientation. The fittings
(koshirae) follow distinctive traditional designs. This
Yari features a long (16-3/4") blade and a black
lacquered sheath (saya).
The rattan wrap version has a more compact 11" long
blade, making for a faster weapon. It also features a
rattan wrapped section at the upper grip, making this a
visually stunning piece.
