CAS Hanwei Naginata
The Naginata, famed weapon of the Sohei, or warrior
monks, of medieval Japan was fearsome in the hands of a
skilled combatant and is today of great importance in
the martial arts field. Our naginata (SH1020), while
retaining its traditional qualities, has been revised to
better meet the needs of the martial arts practitioner
qualified to use an edged weapon.
Hand forged in 1065 high-carbon steel and edge tempered,
using a traditional claying method, the naginata blade
is at least the equal of the originals. Mounted on a
long tang to better absorb the shock of a blow, the
blade has a strong distal taper for balance and
quickness. The delicately engraved tsuba features a
silver butterfly motif. The one-piece staff (ebu) is
very strong, featuring a traditional tear-drop
cross-section for easy recognition of blade orientation
and a black non-slip finish for better control of the
weapon. The naginata is supplied with a wooden saya and
