A very fine 18th century Japanese Naginata.

Overall sheathed this fine example is 242cms long.
The shaft is just under 197cms. The blade seated is 38cms, out,including the tang is 69cms.
The shaft retains its original splayed iron butt spike and fittings.
It is dressed in black lacquer with monor age losses and all fittings are copper with most still retaining their silver overlay.
One very seldom seen aspect is a gold thread grip wrap still in place.
The blade although in a unpolished state is a very fine signed blade.
The harmon is broad and clear in the right light and the upswept tip is thickened and armour piercing.

A very fine complete example that would grade up very well with a polish.
