Thread: Nagamaki

  1. #51
    Here is some interesting information on the Naginata and nagamaki - from Usagiya's website:

    NAGINATA / NAGAMAKI

    Sometimes NAGINATA and NAGAMAKI is a same meaning.


    NAGINATA is a long handled single cutting edged blade.
    Usually it has a unique shape that big curvature, broad width and unokubi-zukuri or kanmuri-otoshi-zukuri.


    And there are long naginata that has over 60cm blade.
    Such blade is especially called NAGAMAKI.
    To separate NAGINATA and NAGAMAKI is difficult.
    (The original meaning of NAGAMAKI is "long wrapped handle")
    Roughly long naginata is called NAGAMAKI.

    Most of naginata have unique grooves that is called "NAGINATA-HI".
    Usually it is followed with narrow groove (soe-hi).

    B. Finn, I'm quite fascinated by the Hikita Shinkage Ryu version of the nagamaki. At the Nihon Kobudo Enbu Taikai this year I snapped quite a few photos of these nagamaki. I am ignorant of whether the gentlemen providing the demonstration were HSR or some other ryu, however.

    Very cool pic Seth, I didn't know you saw that. {edited to say, oh wait is it on that disk you gave me five months ago? }

    You may know that the foremost practitioner of Hikita Shinkage ryu in America lives fairly close to us...

    There's a couple of good threads with some info on Hikita Shinkage ryu at e-budo.

    It is interesting to me that the hand on the blade technique resembles use of ricasso in WMA. But I am really ignorant of this, so that's as far as I will go.

    Nice pic Seth - sure looks like HSR to me. Although I did hear from someone that there is another line of shinkage ryu which still teaches this weapon.

    Yep! Slacker.

    It was really a treat to see such a wide variety of schools at the Taikai.

    What is usually done with the saya after unsheathing the nagamaki?

    Is it stuck through the obi? Or... left on the kake? If no kake is available then... ??

    thats a very interesting picture. is this actually a nodachi technique or a nagimaki technique. they seem to nodachis that they are curtailing. can anybody explain the towel wrap and leather gloves on the blade?
