47" Naginata 1095 High Carbon Steel Blade Alloy Tsuba--Ryan351

Item Introduction

A naginata is a Japanese pole weapon whose blade has a lot of similarities with that of a katana in terms of forging process and shape. Naginata were used by the samurai, foot soldiers (ashigaru), warrior monks (s?hei) and female warriors from noble families (onna-bugeisha). Its long reach makes it an effective weapon against mounted enemy or cavalry and against opponents armed with a sword.

Ryan351 is a naginata with a 1095 high carbon steel blade in unokubi zukuri geometry. The hamon is hand-abrasived. Due to size limitation when shipping packages, the handle of this naginata is shortened similar to the design of a katana's tsuka. It is fully-wrapped with rayskin and synthetic silk ito. The saya is made of hardwood and with polished buffalo horn at the mouth. Tsuba, fuchia and kashira are made of alloy. The fittings are changeable.
