1050 Naginata

Recommended Posts

Well guys and gals I am putting up for sale this wonderful Naginata. the total length of the blade is 36" with a 21" nagasa. The Motohaba is just under 1 1/2" the blade thickness at the mune-machi is 3/16 the blade thickness at the shinogi is 1/4"

The images do not do this blade justice at all there is so much activity in this blade that it truly pains me to sell it. I still have to ad the file marks to the nakago, and to drill the meguki whole. The hamon is Choji, midare.

beautiful blade!!! What steel did you choose to use? also how do you get such great transition lines from the flat to the bevel?

Great work , I made a couple of them a few years ago but, I never could get a decent Hamon ? I found out later I used 1060 (modified ) had a little too much manganese and chrome . It did turn out pretty good , nice sharp and good profile . It was also a kamakura type blade . You did a great job .

If you noticed when you read the post, he said it was made from 1050
