Different Types of Naginata Swords Types

Naginata is a very popular and respected Japanese sword, and over time, several sword variations emerged. All of them showcase the honorable craftsmanship and core values of the Japanese warriors who carried them. 

Here is a quick breakdown of Naginata swords, some may be available in our store:


Konaginata is a shorter version of traditional Naginata, with the handle and blade being almost the same size - around 30 inches. Because it is on the shorter side, Konaginata isn't used as much as some other types. 

In addition, traditional Konaginata swords are difficult to find and many weapon collectors struggle to track them down. 


Oppositely, Onaginata is a longer version of already long swords with a maximum length of almost ten feet. In the past, Japanese warriors relied on Onaginata in crowded battlefields because they were long and had extended reach. 

However, because of its size, Onaginata is significantly heavier than a typical sword and requires a strong warrior to carry. 

Double-edged Naginata

Double-edged Naginata is used in performance acts by Japanese monks and not in battles. It features two blades on both sides of the handle and is also rare to find for individual collections.
