Hanwei Yari



Paul Chen Hanwei - SH2152

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 by Paul Chen is reminiscent of the ones of feudal Japan. The blade is a straight triangulated double-edged forged high-carbon steel with a deep fuller on the flat side of the blade. The tang of the yari is long to absorb the shock of a blow and the one-piece staff construction reinforces the durability of the spear. The Paul Chen yari is modeled after the su-yari or "straight-spear" design. The shaft (ebu) of the yari is done in a deep black lacquer and has a flattened side at the bottom section for blade orientation. The fittings (koshirae) are of traditional design and make the yari aesthetically pleasing. The blade is constructed from hand-forged T10 high-carbon steel. The yari blade is carefully protected by a black lacquered sheath (saya). In both design and structure, this yari is a great addition for those who train in sojutsu.
