CAS Hanwei
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. Paul Chen's Naginata, 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 cloth bag.

Pros: Overall Quality, Materials, Usable
Cons: None
Heavy duty
There are many poorly-made, low-quality edged weapons on the market, but this isn't in that catagory at all.In fact, this naginata has every element of a genuinely lethal weapon and martial arts cutting tool. The overall weight might be surprising at first, but with cutting practice, the weight turns out to be less of a problem than one might expect. This is hefty, sturdy, and very sharp--precisely what one needs in a "real" naginata. This is a nice choice for practitioners and collectors.
