S106. Jumonji Yari
S106. Jumonji Yari. This is smaller than what I think of as average for these yari. The nagasa is 17.7 cm (6 15/16″). The tines are 12.6 cm (4 3/4″) across. The nakago is 34.8 cm (13 11/16″) long. Overall length is 52.5 cm (20 5/8″). A small yari is called “pillow yari”. Maybe this is a pillow jumonji yari.
The yari is unsigned. The hamon is suguba (of course) with lots of fine activity. The yari is out of polish and I can’t see the hada, but it will be masame. There is one fine ware’ on a side piece, about 1.5 cm long, see my picture 5. I don’t know how invisible this would be after a proper polish. Otherwise, I see no pits, cracks, blisters, openings, or any other defects; this should polish well. The yari comes with a pole that doesn’t fit: the nakago doesn’t go all the way in the pole and the mekugi ana don’t line up. This needs polish and shirasaya (and it will be sweet).
