.... 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.
