Pros: Overall Quality, Materials, Usable
There are many poorly-made, low-quality edged weapons on the market, but this isn't in that catagory at all. In fact, this naginata has every element of a genuinely lethal weapon and martial arts cutting tool. The overall weight might be surprising at first, but with cutting practice, the weight turns out to be less of a problem than one might expect. This is hefty, sturdy, and very sharp--precisely what one needs in a "real" naginata. This is a nice choice for practitioners and collectors.
