Jingu, the Empress Naginata (NEBS72F4XX)
This two-handed weapon is simple, elegant, and deadly. With this, you can reach out and touch someone from an immense distance! The deluxe styling of this naginata makes it a top-level favorite for those who prefer a two-handed approach to combat!
This 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 Jinguís foam blade detail creates a thin and sharp look. The length of this weapon makes it ideal for long strikes in safe LARP combat. Here's a video made by Calimacil demonstrating this item.
Just like the musashi line, Jingu allows the use of a Tsuba, Calimacil's custom cross-guards. Tsubas are sold separately.
Graceful, 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 well balanced, making for solid, accurate strikes. The Naginata implies ultimate swiftness and prestige.
