I am offering a Naginata made by Minamoto Masaari of Musashi Province in around 1864. Minamoto Masaari was a student of Muneari.

 

This is a very powerfull and strong feeling Naginata. Not of the ceremonial type but the one you bring for the battle. It measures approx 48.5 cm Nagasa and has a quite thick Motokasane as you can see in the images.

 

The blade was awarded NBTHK Hozon and rests in a newly made Shirasaya. It includes a copper Habaki.  While the blade has old polish left showing a nice wavy Gunome Hamon throughout the blade it would be most beautifull with a fresg polish. It is a bit rough on he Ha (no nicks though) with some scuffs / oixdation and some light pitting. The pictures very much tell it all. I can see one small Ware in the Shinogi ji and there are 3 battle marks on one side near the Habaki.

 

A well made, beefy blade with good length.

 

Price is USD 3200.00
