—In-game description from Fates.
The Bamboo Pole (竹竿 Takezao) is a Naginata that is introduced in Fire Emblem Fates. A joke Naginata that literally takes on the form of a bamboo pole typically used for draping clothes on, the Bamboo Pole is evidently ill-suited for combat due to its low Might. However, its high hit rate makes it a reliable weapon, and the 10% avoid it grants makes it useful for equipping on units that are facing threats they cannot avoid.
Takezao (竹竿) literally means "bamboo pole".
