I suppose this is kind of like the Bushido equivalent of a Chivalry Zweihander? Lol.

Description

The Nagamaki was a long sword with a blade that could be 2 feet or more and a handle that about equal length to the blade. The blade was single-edged and it could resemble a Naginata blade, but the main difference in how the blades were mounted was that the handle (tsuka) of the Nagamaki was not a simple wooden shaft as in the Naginata; it was made more like a Katana hilt. Even the name "Nagamaki" ("long wrapping") is given by the tradition of handle wrapping. The Nagamaki handle was wrapped with leather or silk cords in criss-crossed manner, very similar to the wrapping that is made on Katana. The Nagamaki is considered to be evolved from the extremely long Nodachi or ōdachi (coming soon!!) swords.

During the middle of the Muromachi period (1336–1573 A.D.) the Nagamaki reached its peak of usage. It is considered the favored weapon of samurai General Oda Nobunaga. Uesugi Kenshin is said to have a special guard of retainers armed with Nagamaki.
