S101. Jumonji Yari
S101. Jumonji Yari.
The Blade: Nagasa (length of blade not counting tang) is 23.7 cm (9 3/8"), the nakago (tang) is 33.3 cm (13 1/8"), and the tines are 19.2 cm across (7 5/8"). The nakago is unsigned and has 2 mekugi-ana. There is some shallow pitting on the tines (see my pictures for both sides of both tines); the central shaft of this yari is in excellent condition. When I got this the state of polish was such that I could see no hamon (temperline). I have taken a sliver of fingerstone to one area and only just enough to show that the hamon is here. This should polish quite nicely. A friend who has seen this listing has told me there is a good chance this is Koto and from the Yamato kanabo school.
The Saya: Most of the lacquer has been removed. The pieces of wood are held together with small metal pins; I suspect these aren't original but don't know for sure. The saya fits well.
The Pole: 143.5 cm (56.5") long without the blade, hardwood with cord wrap at the middle and metal fittings either end. There is no mekugi-ana in the pole, which I think is a modern reproduction.
Shipping: I think it would be best if this yari were shipped in 2 cartons: one for the pole and the other for the blade and saya. Expect to pay a bit more for shipping. As always, my cost to ship will be your cost to ship; I don't mark it up.
