Etymology[edit | edit source]
The naginata (薙刀), was a polearm used by samurai. It was essentially a spear with a curved blade. The naginata is one class of the Nihontō (日本刀), Japanese bladed weapons.
Nageyari (投槍) literally means "throwing spear," and the yari (槍), is also polearm that samurai used, which had a straight blade. This kind of weapon is also a class of Nihontō.
