    The Japanese Naginata was a pole arm with pronounced, curved, heavy, slashing blade mounted on long poles used by Japanese warriors not only to attack opposing infantry but also to cut down horses of attacking cavalry. This ancient Japanese Naginata blade is in excellent condition and comes with the wood pole arm shaft in which it was found. The signature and condition of blade have been assessed & translated by the UK based Japanese Sword expert Bill Tagg. Exerts from the assessment are illustrated in the images and accompany the Naginata.

The blade has fullers and the tang has 2 peg holes. The blade mounted on the pole arm shaft measures a massive 2.527 Metres overall length.
