I am trying to make myself a naginata or japanese curved spear out of wood. If anyone has any tips or information about this weapon let me know.

Hello Buddhistfist,

I purchased a naginata(7ft) made out of Hickory from It has held up to repeated beatings, and I think only cost me around $80.0

All the best
