This functional yari spear is made from one solid piece of folded high carbon steel. The yari was one of the earliest weapons used by Japanese warriors. In early Japanese history the yari was a common weapon on the battlefield, even used more often than the samurai sword until the Edo period when close quarters combat became more prevalent. Infantry units would advance in a tight formation with spears in hand and raise a wall of blades to stop the advance of enemy infantry while keeping a safe distance. Yari techniques focus on thrusting and stabbing, but combine slashing and striking in some situations. Please note, our spears are handmade so specifications vary slightly from blade to blade.
