    The same legendary sword makers who hand forge each Shinwa Katana blade are now producing this unique Samurai Warrior spear. Each Shinwa spear features a 12 1/2" hand-forged Damascus steel blade that is double edged and razor-sharp. This fully functional spear blade is attached to a elm wood shaft that is coated in a black lacquer paint. Each shaft is then hand-wrapped in the traditional cotton cord and ray skin tsuka that all Shinwa katana use. This Shinwa spear includes an embossed Shinwa leather sheath. 62 1/4" overall length

    hand forging samurai sword blades process

    About Shinwa:

    Shinwa swords are made by hand using traditional methods in the ancient sword-making township of Lonquan. The sword-making history of this town can be traced back to the twentieth year of the Guangxu in the Qing Dynasty – exceptional sword making continues there still today. The swordsmiths of Lonquan can apprentice for up to six years before they begin to forge these functional works of art on their own.

    Each Shinwa sword is hand forged at temperatures of up to 1,100 °F and continuously heated, folded, hammered and shaped before being oil quenched and then straightened. Damascus steel blades are folded as many as ten times to yield up to 2,056 layers of premium Damascus steel. After quenching the blade is then ground and hand sharpened and polished by the swordsmith on a series of wet stones. Each set of these wet stones contains a finer level of silicate particles, which produces an even sharper edge. In the final stages of this painstaking process, the tsuka is wrapped and tsuba and other fittings are added before a thin coat of oil is added to the blade to prevent corrosion.

    This is an affordable version of a Yari or Ko Yari on the Japanese style of Most do not know or have proper training of most weapons if you are going to chop trees or throw it like a spear then you deseve to have the shaft broken it would be comparable if you were to pick up a katana and cut cord wood its not going to happen this may not be socketed like a true Yari of high japanese descendentry but it is a good and sturdy tool just the same

    spear is meh. bought one from trueswords (you guys) and the tip was weak, it bent from 4 layers of cardboard, i mean, come on now. the blade is KINDA sharp, compared to, say, cold steel, its like a butter knife. honestly wouldve been cheaper and better to buy a spear from coldsteel.? ive only owned 2 coldsteel products that were purchased AFTER i purchased this, and i can honestly say that i am NOT impressed by shinwa, there are many other spears out there cheaper or the same price that are much better quality, im not sure how shinwa swords are but their spear is kinda crap, not bashing, telling my honest opinion, honestly not impressed by shinwa, i gave it some time to prove me wrong and the edge dulls far too quickly, the tip was gone literally the first day and it was on legitamately just cardboard, nothing else, wouldnt buy this thing again

    The spear blade is OK as described, the shaft, however is not Elm but cheap hollow plastic I will never believe another description on true swords and probably will not purchase from them again
    Response: The shaft is indeed elm. We cut the shaft in half to check. Elm is a very lightweight wood, but it is very strong. But if you are not satisfied with the product, you may return an item within 60 days of purchase. You can contact us at 1-800-735-3326 to obtain a return label for your package. Thanks!
