The Japanese Nodachi was the hardest to make friends with, but is now my favorite two handed weapon of all. The quality and sharpness of the Cold Steel Nodachi is unmatched, and the feeling of how it moves once you understand it is unparalleled. This Nodachi teaches respect, focus of mind and ‘centeredness’. This is wielding a real battlefield war weapon designed for real use.
Longer in overall length than the Large Bagua Saber ATS used to produce, it is the best crossover to the Large Saber practices. The Nodachi, however, has a much longer handle and shorter blade, taking some adjustment but encouraging greater two handed power strikes and space clearing swings. The smaller width of the blade changes how it rolls around the hand but requires full focus to not cut the fingers.
