MINTY JUMONJI YARI WWII Japanese Samurai Sword WW2 NIHONTO Shin Gunto SPEAR. SWORDS AND WHOLE COLLECTIONS! The blade represents the opportunity to own a rare and historic polearm from the Shinto period. The blade and the mounts are in Near MINT condition. The blade is a jumonji yari , a tri-pointed spear popular with samurai fighting during the Sengoku period of Japanese civil wars. It has a blade length of 9.5 inches (24cm), a blade width of 3.5 inches (9cm) and a tang with a length of 11 inches (28cm). The hada is a wood-grained itame hada that mixes with a straight masame hada. The hamon is a straight suguha. The tang is mumei, or unsigned, but shows remnants of a signature that ends with the kanji Yuki. Based on the shape and workmanship, this yari looks to date the mid to late 1600s. The mountings include an original and long ebu , or staff, the polearm fits into. It is 36 inches (91cm) long. The staff features a well-implemented customized black and silver swirled lacquer. It shows few scratches, cracks, or loose wraps, retaining roughly 95-97% of its original finish. There is also a rare maroon lacquered cover for the blade. The cover is in Near MINT condition and features an imperial Kiri mon. The blade is in Near MINT condition. It shows no nicks, few if any spots of rust, and a few scratches along its length. There is one small lateral ware near the tang. There are no major flaws like hagire. Given the the rarity of a desirable jumonji yari with staff, as well as the history and craftsmanship of the yari, I highly recommend this piece for a collector of WW2 militaria or Japanese swords. Due to the length, the cost may be higher than the quoted estimate on this listing. Terms and additional items: This item is original and not a knockoff or fake.
