Lets put it this way, when google only returns 4 results, and 2 are in german, its probably a good sign youve got no chance in hell, and i noticed the german ones are forum threads from 2002, so its quite dated i presume. To get youre hands on one would be very pricey i fear. But all the best! 8)

Paul Chen Yari

Are we going to see the Paul Chen Yari on Blades-UK anytime soon? I'm amazed it is not already on the site considering the Yari was a primary weapon for the samurai, ranking above the Wakizashi for its combat usefulness and use. i know Blades-UK feature a few naginata (dont know plural), but the Yar...
