Empress Jingu herself trained with the Naginata at a young age, bringing further prestige to the use of a weapon. It is said that the wind sung in accordance with her movements, dancing about the blade as she wielded it in a deadly zephyr. Over time, the saddened spirit of the sliced wind became trapped within Jingu’s Naginata, only adding power and precision to its current use.
WorkshopThis two-handed weapon is two-thirds handle, one-third blade. Like its historical counterparts, this weapon features a hand guard between the blade and shaft. The Jingu’s foam blade detail creates a thin and sharp look. The length of this weapon makes it ideal for long strikes in safe LARP combat.
CharacterGraceful, balanced and precise, it is ideal for characters such as Asian-inspired warriors, samurai, and elves. Historically, the Naginata is also a weapon of social status and triumph. It is notoriously balanced, making for solid, accurate strikes. The Naginata implies ultimate swiftness and prestige.
