The Yari by Paul Chen was an essential battlefield weapon of the Samurai in feudal Japan and took great skill to use and maneuver, due to its length and size. This piece is modeled after the su-yari or “straight-spear” design. The blade is forged in T10 high-carbon steel and is 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. The shaft (ebu) is finished in a textured black and has a flattened side at the bottom section for blade orientation. The one-piece staff construction reinforces the durability of the spear. This version features a long (16-3/4”) blade. See model SH2312 for our short-bladed Yari.

Specifications may slightly vary from piece to piece.
The daggers are approximately made as follows. The basic shape of the blade is made by a laser CNC machine. It is burned from spring steel. The semi-finished blade follows then in the groove cutter, where the cutting edge and the groove are milled. The blade is then oil-quenched and tempered to the desired hardness. Then the guard and pommel is attached to the blade tang. The tang is usually peened at the end (behind the pommel) and the cross-guard hard soldered with brass. Hardwood plates are placed under the handle wrapping from genuine cowhide so that the handle is sufficiently robust for a safe grasp. The steels surfaces obtain the desired finish in the end - with a wire brush or with a felt disc with polishing paste.
