Hi there! This is my first post and I'm Looking to make a custom Yari spear. Although it's a pretty simple concept, I do not like the looks of mass produced spears online. And FULL custom spears from oustanding guys like Miller Bros Blades is really (really- really) expensive ...Therefore why not make a custom one. Goal: A really durable tactical fighting spear. my concept:***5ft ' 3in carbon fiber pole Diameter: 1 1/2" -filled with a wood pole thats 1.25'' in diameter I like carbon fiber and think it's a good material for practicing your forms while still being light and strong enough to hold its own against wood. Ofcourse not many recommend it since wood is proven true to be the best material (and theres a reason we still use wood bo staffs today folks). Good wood gives you Weight, sturdiness, flexibility in a staff. However, recently I got inspired by a thread i read at a different site about filling a carbon fiber pole (air tight) with a wood of some kind (like ash, wax, hickory,..etc.). Blade : Custom 9" z wear pm steel / double edge blade. Pretty tough steel.Overall Length: 6ft (I'm 5'11)Other custom ideas like a "Reinforced Steel end cap" and "steel braces" on each end will be worked on as the setup gos.What are y'all thoughts on this? Might turn out just as cool as it will be fun. Also could use some tips on how the blade can be secured in the tubing without looking Tarzan made lol. P.s. I'll attach images of what i want the spear to look very similar too. Its a full custom spear made by Miller Bros Blades. (The spear tubing from the photos attached are also carbon fiber but hollow.)
