A Japanese Polearm

When we think of polearms or poleweapons we go directly to all the famous european polearms from the middle ages. These are weapons like Halberds, Pikes, and lances. But, the Japanese also had a series of pole weapons that are similar yet different.

I received an email from somebody who owns one and it is in amazing shape! Here are some pictures of it. ANd.....if you can shed any light on it or tell us more about it please feel free to email me!

I have identified it as a Japanese weapon called a Jumonji Yari.
