This Kris Cutlery Naginata blade is ready to be fitted into a hardwood shaft of your own choosing. The blade is forged from 1060 high carbon steel and finished with a fitted brass habaki. The blade has the thick spine and long, gradually sloped blade edges typical of good Japanese bladed weaponry, as well as the chisel-point tip ideal for puncturing armors.

After the katana, the Naginata is one of the iconic weapons of Japanís tumultuous feudal age. With a blade forged in the fashion of a katana, the naginata blade on its balanced pole is the success of combining the reach of the spear with the cutting power of the katana. It is no surprise then that the Naginata came into prominence during the late 12th Century Gempei War - Cavalry had begun to be a larger force on the field, and the Naginata was effective at dismounting mounted foes. The Naginata is typically balanced so that it can be spun like a staff to create space and its long handle gives great leverage for cutting power.

While common in the hands of samurai, the Naginata found particular prominence in the hands of the Sohei Buddhist warrior monks, who often devoted themselves to the perfection of Naginatjutsu.
