A very unusual Yari in the way it has been mounted , a double Fukuro. the blade is in a nice condition showing some Hamon .
the Saya is showing some damage commensurate with its age . The nagar ( pole ) is showing a reptile style scale lacquer and a stylised dragon . A very interesting piece the only one we have seen with this “ double “ Fukuro style.
quite a small item often referred to as a pillow Yari , for home defence, but also equally equipped in a palanquin as a defensive weapon and used by a Daimyo or a high ranking lady .
Success! Feel free to
