Y Is For Yumi...

Well, here we are in the last two days. I have been unable to find armor components that begin with X, Y or Z, but I have found weapons to finish out the challenge. So here we go with Y!

Yumi - is the term for Japanese bows, and includes the longer daikyū and the shorter hankyū used in the practice of kyūdō, or Japanese archery. The yumi was an important weapon of the samurai warrior during the feudal period of Japan.

Yari - is the term for one of the traditionally made Japanese blades in the form of a spear, or more specifically, the straight-headed spear.

All right! That's it for today. I will see you all tomorrow for the final post and letter of the challenge.
