Re: [SCA-JML] Spear 'sheath'
>Is this just for decoration, to look like there is a spear head inside?I'm not quite sure of your question, but I assume if you are asking if this is a real saya for a jumonji-yari. (Not sure if the term is wholly correct, too tired to look it up... spearhead shaped like kanji for the number 10)
I would have to say that it is not a real saya, there is no point for the "ju" bits to enter, and while maybe a straight yari was inserted, the hole is probably just for a shaft. I would guess it is ceremonial only, sankin-kotai and all.
I have purchased once from this buyer before, and was quite satisfied by his representation of the product, the final price, and his service.
Hope this answers your question.
