What is a Nagamaki?
The Nagamaki is like the perfect combination of a sword and a polearm, with the grace of a ballerina and the power of a sumo wrestler.
The Nagamaki was first used by the samurai class, who were the warriors of Japan's feudal period. They were always on the lookout for new and innovative ways to slice, dice, and generally dismember their enemies. And the Nagamaki fit the bill perfectly.
The sword part of the Nagamaki is a thing of beauty. It's long, slender, and wickedly sharp, designed to slice through targets like a hot knife through butter. And the long handle it's mounted on is sturdy and solid, allowing for powerful thrusts and crushing blows.
But the real beauty of the Japanese Nagamaki is in the way it's used. It requires a high degree of skill to wield properly, as it's both a long-range and close-quarters weapon. The samurai who used it had to be fast, agile, and able to anticipate their opponent's moves.
The nagamaki also had a psychological advantage. The sight of a warrior wielding such an impressive weapon was often enough to make enemies quake in their boots. And the sound it made as it cut through the air - a sort of whistling noise - was enough to strike fear into the hearts of even the bravest foes.
Of course, like all weapons, the Nagamaki sword has its downsides. It's not the easiest weapon to wield, and it requires a lot of strength and stamina. But those minor quibbles aside, the Japanese Nagamaki is an impressive weapon that deserves to be celebrated. It's a testament to the ingenuity and creativity of the Japanese blacksmiths, who were always looking to innovate.
Where to buy high-quality Nagamaki?
If you're looking for a high-quality Japanese Nagamaki for sale, you're in the right place. At Katanasforsale you can customize your own Nagamaki or any other Japanese swords, we take pride in being one of the only online stores with such a large catalog and selection of Nagamaki swords for sale.
You can customize your own Nagamaki sword as per your size and specifications along with selection of steel and all other parts of the Nagamaki.
All our swords are fully battle ready. They’ve been crafted with functionality in mind, employing best practices in the world of swordmaking. They all are full-tang (the blade goes all the way into the handle), which is the way genuine samurai swords are made. This allows them to resist blows, instead of splitting in two when you try to use it (as it happens with rat-tail tangs).
Our Nagamaki swords are also made with different graduations of carbon steel. This might change the overall flexibility of the blade (depending on what type of carbon steel you choose), but it makes all of them fully functional. We do NOT use stainless steel, as it creates brittle weapons.
Finally, if you’re looking for high-quality material for the handle, you’re in the right place. The handle of a nagamaki is as important as its blade, and we guarantee it will be sturdy, comfortable to hold, and will provide you with the best grip in the market.
