Naginata blade

Hello Buyu's,

I received a request to make Kukishinden ryu naginata, and so I "fell" to the stage built up Naginata's
I do not know how many I will  make them, and in how  many forms, it  is a big issue. For now here are a few forms of the blade, soon it will be more.
Here it will be only pictures of blades,
because the shape is what makes the difference, everything else, tsuba (size of tsuba), Ishizuki (shape of ishizuki), length of nagaye(handle), tachiuchi, is up to you.

I will also try to make my version of Tsukushi naginata (orTsukushi fukuro) for practice.

Shinobi Daisho

Hello Buyu's

here is the new swords, I never asked for the right name for these swords, so if someone knows, I'll be grateful.
For now, we call them Shinobi Daisho, of course, these are for sale and who offered more, will have an interesting training.
According to some sources, this weapon can be called "Gyaku ni Daisho", gyaku because the reverse placed.
You could see this type of tool on some video material, or in the literature of  Soke Hatsumi,
so you probably all realize the purpose of this tool.  
The key element is definitely a surprise, but in addition there are several more important details.
  The first is the Tsuba, which in this case closer to the top of the blades, which practically marks part is called "Mono uchi" or part of the blade used for cutting. 
In this way we can better control the opponent's blade or him, also we can used Tsuba for pulling opponent as some kind of hook.
Sageo is also a position that allows a special kind of control blades, for example, if you drag the end of the Sageo in the direction of the opponent, tip of blade will also move in the direction of the opponent.
Other benefits try to discover you using your own imagination, if not ask someone else, or visit one of my future workshops, which I will try arrange to meet people with the technical characteristics of  weapons used in their Budo training
