Kari-Ebira are a more common “open framed” light samurai quiver. The arrows are secured with a cord or leather thong, twisted around them and then wedged into the ridged bottom. The base was normally a box or a basket. It was favored by many samurai because it was light, easy to transport and could be worn while on horse, foot and could even be seated on the ground. It was used universally for both hunting and war. On occasion it was used by some mounted samurai or carried by their retainers. Handcrafted from wood or bamboo, capable of holding more than a dozen ya (arrows) depending on the yajiri (tip). Some styles of kari-ebira quivers were covered with fur (optional) and called Sakatsura quivers.
