Modern Combat Naginata
Naginatas started out as polearms used throughout the feudal period of Japan. These kinds of melee weapons were fashioned by securing anything pointy onto a stick. In this case, it meant adding a longer handle to the threatening curved blade used for hacking through dense underbrush or shaping livestock bones into tools. Once the spear-pointed naginata was deemed a success, it continued to help defend lands and people by dismounting cavalry as well as being effective in close combat fights. The art of training with these longswords, as well as many other Samurai swords, is carried on today with modern martial arts competitions and expositions showing the traditional way to wield these intimidating blades! Naginatas are also commonly used in women's competitions because historically it was how the ladies would fight for their honor!
It is well known that the Samurai warriors were a compact but mighty cast. A force to be reckoned with, the fearless soldiers were trained with hand combat weapons and of course, these curved-edge slicing daggers. While we consider it an exotic weapon today, having a sword around for self-defense from aggressive opponents would have been commonplace in many time periods. With a 20-inch blade, this stainless steel sword will give pause to any would-be attacker, and will invoke applause from your fellow cosplay antiheros. Similar to the Japanese yari, and known also as a Korean woldo, a Russian sovnya, and a Chinese guandao, this medieval sharp pole weapon can find a place in any authentic or fantasy costume or tactical weapons collection.
Forged with 1065 high carbon stainless steel, this glaive-style blade has been treated with a black coating that will last through the ages. The black straight edge blade matches the black nylon fiber handle in both color and durability. With textured print and grafted ridges, with two hands or one, the handle will keep you in control while you keep control of your situation. At 3 pounds 3 ounces, this dark longsword will be easy to slip into the sheath and carry around, even at about 40 inches long! Find a place to display this impressive curved black Japanese spear using the holes in the handle to mount it where you see fit. The sheath is jet black woven nylon and will keep your urban combat pole weapon safe and clean if you take it out. While not in use, tuck the sharpened edge into the sheath and snap the handle in for completely hassle-free carrying.
Defend your honor with this formidable black carbon steel sword. Let this majestic curved blade make a lasting impression from your wall or from your hand as it brings history to modern life. Take your role-play ensemble to the next level with this tactical polearm!
