CAS Hanwei Yari Previous Item Next Item Get Item Price


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.
