    Custom Naginata

    On offer, is a Naginata made by John W.Smith of the USA.
    Made from 1050 steel with an overall length of 92.5cm, cutting edge length of 53.5cm, width(at machi) of 36mm and thickness(at machi) of 7mm.
    It sports a flamboyant choji midare hamon and has a thin strip of muneyaki the full length of the mune.
    It comes with a copper habaki and a Late Edo period saya.
    The saya is old, beat up and split in two lengthways but it does the job of keeping the blade protected.

    Price is US$1000, which includes international shipping and paypal or bank transfer fees.
    Payment is by paypal or bank transfer.

    My pictures do not do it justice but here they are.
