By the way, this is the unidentified metal parts thought to be Kfoun Period Wakibiki.They are too large to be horse shoe, although I think they look very similar to later Japaense neck armor.https://webarchives.tnm.jp/imgsearch/show/E0058583https://webarchives.tnm.jp/imgsearch/show/E0074698https://webarchives.tnm.jp/imgsearch/show/C0057259If they are really Wakibiki, the Kofun Period armor just need to have a mask to have full protection.I do however found interesting helmets like these.http://www.sakitama-muse.spec.ed.jp/index.php?page_id=683https://webarchives.tnm.jp/imgsearch/show/C0046127Maybe they are made to deflect arrows coming from the top? The Kote is the Jack plate, Do-maru is the brigandine, the Suneate already cover the legs either on the front or completely and the thigh is protected by the Haidate, if we want it to be complete.I am currently making an album of my armor study, if I can make the memory small enough, I can send it to you or others who want it by Email. (triangular with no ridge) cross section, but are quite rare. Well some Edo period armors arguably had complex structures, like the famous Tengu armor which has articulated lames in lieu of mail in the elbow region. @Joshua thank you and thank you for sharing all the information on eastern Asian armors!About those museum pieces you linked, although they look similar to the illustration of that book, the museum listed them as agricultural tools; namely hoes and plows.I don't know wether or not wakibiki existed in the Kofun period to be honest; I should found something done by Y.Sasama on the subject.In any case, about those helmets, those are definitely the forerunner of the fukigaeshi.Very interesting ideed. Sorry for the late response...1) I guess that cutting a long wood stick should not be so difficult if it is held very strongly (not always the case), although I think that if greatswords were used against spades, they would probably use them to push them out of the way. Both are weapons that favor skill and training over brute strength. @ARMCHAIR SKEPTICSorry, that I too a long time to reply, I am currently busy working on my compilation.Yes, the Tosei Gusoku use solid steel cuirass. @Francisco Souza AguirreHi! https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn%3AANd9GcSuUsYT-ehfxoXsA1jGvxnlLmGOUekwmExXgt1nHM6n73hJQ_cWAs a side note, The little swirl that comes off of the hook, is also a Chinese aesthetic.4.)

describes foot soldiers parading through the capital bearing “. It also doesn't help that blogger screwed up with the font dimension, and I have to fix that too; I hope that it is still visible. In general, simply the look. In any case, try to google "Japanese diplomatic gifts of arms and armour to Europe during the 16th and 17th centuries, by Ian Bottomley", the article is availabe on some forums. Please feel free to share the article and for any questions, leave a comment! Le naginatajutsu (なぎなた術 / 長刀術 / 薙刀術?) Throughout these few centuries (the 11th to the 16th centuries), there was a gradual power shift in that local lords, or daimyo, had more of a say in their own personal armies. Yes, that is also my opinion that the shaft behind the blade did not add anything to the impact. It is quite possible that while the very long ones weren't used anymore on the field, the "shorter" ones in between 90 and 120cm might have been still common and used as "regular swords". Even for a fantasy game, I am actually finding a ton of historical authenticity and references that are a nod or that parallel with the real Sengoku Period history, it's astonishingSo I definitely look forward to seeing your thoughts on the game in the future : ). This is why I linked the previous comments on the evolution of warfare - during the Genpei and successive conflicts, warfare in Japan shifted from a very personal combat to a more 'en masse' style warfare.

Excessive face protection against bullets will not really be effective.Limb armor is always thin even in plate armor, so it will not protect against bullet. Though naginatas were common weapons among the spearmen of commoner infantry divisions, they also found a place as a symbol of status for samurai's wives. [12] Cavalry battles had become more important by this time, and the naginata proved excellent at dismounting cavalry and disabling riders. Tremendous research my friend!I am bit surprised however that you did not use iconography paintings from the late Sengoku Period which feature 16th-17th century Samurai wielding Naginatas such as at the Siege of Osaka in 1615, solidifying that the use of the weapon did not completely die out on the battlefield... https://www.kunst-fuer-alle.de/media_kunst/img/41/g/41_00206859~japanische-geschichte_siege-of-osaka-1615---japanese-screen.jpg https://c8.alamy.com/comp/DE327B/detail-of-part-of-a-folding-screen-which-depicts-the-siege-of-osaka-DE327B.jpg. Thanks. If it has influenced anyone, it has been to drive people to drink. Before muskets, would pikes be used already? @Gunsen HistoryThank you for translating those pieces, I think it's alright if those are not Wakibiki, the pauldron of Kofun armor will still cover those are anyway.How are those helmets related to later Japanese helmet? Are there surviving example? Even when the warrior is lightly armored like the Vikings, they still rather wear face armor than protect the limbs.However for most of European history, face armor is not a common part of the total armor use and for iron torso armor, a mail or scale shirt is probably the most common for a large part of European history. I meant that there were popular designs using solid steel cuirass like Hotoke dō, not that all tosei gosoku used solid steel cuirass.Also, I realize you are a prominent member on this blog, so of course you would know of that article. Glaive, Guisarme, Ranseur, Halbred, Glaive-Guisarme. Three types of tsukushi naginata and a hoko spear on the last picture; taken from, Few unique designs that are worth mentioning, although rarer, are the ones that incorporates side hooks or small deformations on the back of the blade. Since the naginata with its pole is heavier and much slower than the Japanese sword, the blade of the ko-naginata was smaller than the male warrior's ō-naginata in order to compensate for the lesser height and upper body strength of a woman than an armoured male samurai. That is a huge red flag for me, telling me it was "NOT MADE IN JAPAN." Mongol armor progress rapidly from being light in 1300 to rivalling European knights in 1400.

They are essentially weapons for the field.". I know there has to be a bunch of nerds like me who know enough to think themselves expert but not enough to realize they are far from that. During the Genpei War (1180–1185), in which the Taira clan was pitted against the Minamoto clan, the naginata rose to a position of particularly high esteem, being regarded as an extremely effective weapon by warriors. It is called a kihon-yo.

@Joshua GaniI should have been more specific. [8] Earlier 10th through 12th century sources refer to "long swords" that while a common medieval term or orthography for naginata, could also simply be referring to conventional swords; one source describes a naginata being drawn with the verb nuku, commonly associated with swords, rather than hazusu, the verb otherwise used in medieval texts for unsheathing naginata. Although associated with considerably smaller numbers of practitioners, a number of "koryu bujutsu" systems (traditional martial arts) which include older and more combative forms of naginatajutsu remain existent, including Suio Ryu, Araki Ryu, Tendo Ryu, Jikishinkage ryu, Higo Koryu, Tenshin Shoden Katori Shinto Ryu,Toda-ha Buko Ryu and Yoshin ryu, some of which have authorized representatives outside Japan. It is hard to pinpoint when the naginata started to appear, but it is likely that it was developed due to the new tactics and warfare of the Heain period. It's not necessary to read this, but I personally believe that a basic understanding of the shifting contextual elements is crucial to recognising why and how the naginata, and other weapons, were effective at their purpose. Horsemen definitely existed. Also I remembered I do go more into detail of the evolution of Japanese military ideology here - I covered more than just this period. I am by no means an expert on this (my main focus is Chinese weapons after all), so feel free to correct me if I got anything wrong or if my opinions are unjustified. As far as I can see, This blade has no Hamon. est un art martial japonais.

A naginata consists of a wooden or metal pole with a curved single-edged blade on the end; it is similar to the Chinese guan dao[4] or the European glaive. [6][7] It is difficult to tell when the naginata itself first appeared; though often claimed as being invented by the sōhei during the Nara period, physical evidence of their existence dates only from the mid-Kamakura period, and earlier literary sources are ambiguous.
