CISH2152: Yari Spear

CAS Hanwei

The Yari was an essential battlefield weapon of the Samurai and took great skill to use and maneuver due to its length and size. We now have two Yari designs, both based on originals dating to feudal Japan. Both blades are forged in T-10 high-carbon steel and are 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 and the one-piece staff construction reinforces the durability of the spear. 

Both of CAS Hanwei's yari are modeled after the su-yari or “straight-spear” design. The shafts (ebu) are 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. The popular SH2152 Yari features a long (16.75") blade while that of the new SH2312 is more compact at 11” long, making for a faster weapon. The SH2312 Yari also features a rattan wrapped section at the upper grip, making this a visually stunning piece. Both Yaris are provided with black lacquered sheaths (saya).

Pros: None
Cons: Materials, Finish, Handle Material, Head Material, Overall Quality, Usability
Would never buy again
The top brass ring, is made of a cheap material, that wasn't properly fastened to the shaft. Upon unwrapping it came loose. The bottom metal cap is crooked and looks cheap. For a $400 spear, extremely poor quality, the Sheath for the metal point is a cheap painted piece of wood that is so loose when on, it falls off, not secure what so ever. Would never purchase again. Saved up for quite some time, and was very disappointed. Even looks like the head of the spear is crooked. CHEAP
