The Japanese Spear
- After the mongol invasion, the spear (yari) started becoming more popular because the Mongolian army was attacking in larger units and swords were ineffective and heavy.
- The spear with the katana-like blades are called naginata. Naginatas are commonly used by foot soldiers and female samurai.
- The spears were more common than the katana during the Muromachi period and Sengoku periods.
