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.

When one sword is just not enough - Nihonzashi
Sherry & Mike Femal,
Sherry and Mike started Nihonzashi in 2006 so their students of Toyama Ryu would have a consistent supply of uniforms, swords and tatami mats. We have enjoyed growing the business to what it is today and are proud to be known worldwide for our custom products and services. Sherry and Mike created and custom make all of the gekken swords we ship around the world. Also, Mike is fulfiling his dream of expanding his custom weapons to include knives. We look forward to what the future brings and what new creations are on the horizon.
