Antique Japanese yari with rusted blade. It is a black rust so It is no longer active and should not grow. Even in this condition we can see hamon very clearly, there are also some kizu. Very nice natural patina on kerakubi.
Shape of the blade and consistent hamon indicate that it is close to the original shape. It was not damaged or extensively polished.
Blade: 15 cm
Whole yari: 38,5 cm
I have some yari koshirae and poles. Please ask if you are interested.
