The Naginata is the Japanese version of the Pole Arm. The design of the weapon was originally based on the Chinese Pu Dao. The Naginata first came into use during the 8th century. Originally used to dismount horsemen, the Naginata also proved to be efficient in clearing foot soldiers and soon became a favorite among the Samurai.
This edition of a Naginata is shorter and does not feature the long rod that usually accompanied the Naginata blade, but this version was made more like a sword with a curvy blade.
The blade features a double Bo-Hi (groove) for better balance and a audible feedback when the sword is swung. It is fully functional and can be used for drills, practice or target cutting (Tamashigiri).
Blade: The blade of the Naginata has been constructed from clay tempered T10 steel. It features an authentic clay tempered hamon. The Blade is fully functional and sharp. Test cutting proved that it can be used for test cutting such as bamboo / tatami mats / water bottles.
