Spharai is a hand-to-hand weapon that provides +23 damage, +86 delay, Attack +20, enhances Counter effect, and gives access to the Weapon Skill Final Heaven. Its hidden effect occasionally allows attacks to inflict 3x normal damage. It deals +4.88 damage per second and accumulates +6 TP per hit. It can be equipped by level 75 Monk. It can be obtained in the "Relic Knuckles: Spharai" quest or the special Nomad Mog Bonanza 2010 (Rank 1) event.
The Sphairai are the Relic Weapons for Scholars. The Unfinished Sphairai are acquired and upgraded to the Sphairai in the quest A Relic Reborn (Sphairai), and upgraded several levels further in the ensuing questchain before being replaced by the Kaiser Knuckles. The much stronger Sphairai Ultima can later be purchased in Rhalgr's Reach using tokens received from The Weapon's Refrain.
Sphairai Novus and Sphairai Nexus's secondary stats are determined by what the player chose to imbue in their Sphairai in the process of upgrading it to Sphairai Novus, and can be redone by acquiring and imbuing a new Sphere Scroll: Sphairai from Hubairtin in Central Thanalan and presenting it to Jalzahn Daemir in the North Shroud.

Non-Final Fantasy guest appearancesEdit
The Final Fantasy XIV incarnation of Sphairai appears as a weapon as part of the collaboration agreement between Square Enix and Sega.
In around BCE 400, the sphairai were introduced in Ancient Greek boxing. The sphairai were very similar to himantes. The only notable difference was that they contained a padded interior when wrapped around the hands and the exterior of the thong was notably more rigid and hard.
