    Nata machete

    Post by sparkly-twinkly-lizard on Thu Mar 29, 2012 9:40 pm

    in the murakumo's description it mentions something called a Nata machete thats a bit smaller than the mura.... any one know anything about this? is it maybe a regular reinforcement weapon nobodies found? or is it just flavor text? (or am i thinking of another weapons text?)

    Flavor text.

    It actually looks like a really exaggerated nagitana (spelling?) which is about a third longer than a katana and designed so it can be used from horse back.

    I've never heard of a nata machete so i cant say what it is but a quick google search hasn't enlightened me yet.

    EDIT: I have the guide book so i'm pretty sure its not an in game weapon btw. The scaling might be wrong after 1.05 but i highly doubt they straight missed a weapon.

    The Nata machete in real life is sone kind of Japanese hand axe, although it resembles a larger dagger. The description of the murakumo says that it is heavier than a nata machete, so maybe the nata is heavier than a Katana.

    it only weighs a pound and a half. My right foot is heavier than that. Hardly worth mentioning in a description.

    Now if you added 3 or 4 feet to its length.........

    might make a nice addition to the next game or dlc if as forum pirate suggests it be a few feet longer.

    Yeah it seems Namco made a translation error there, if they are talking about the Nata in real life or another sword, but who knows...

    I'm pretty sure a naginata is a long blade polearm which has a blade in the same style as the katana and is used for thrusting and cutting attacks. Much like a cross between sword and spear.

    Pirate is right and they were effectively used from horse back by heavily armoured samurai and also by infantry who were either heavily armoured or by light skirmishers.

    The rank and file of medival japanese soldiers used either a yari (spear), katana (depending on provincial wealth), or the Yume (Long bow).

    Also the Murakumo looks nothing like a Naginata just like that masssive sword from Inuyasha or a giant katana.

    Not sure about the Nata Machete though.

    Yeah these guys scare me with the knowledge they keep tucked away for things like this.

    Fortunately this topic presented me with the chance to pop out a bit of japanese history which is one of the few sections of history I know stuff about.
