Similar to the glaive, the ko-naginata is a pole weapon made for dexterous female martial artists not weighed down by the heavier armors of their male peers. The blade of a 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. The weapon is too cumbersome to be effectively wielded by smaller creatures, while still being balanced for nimble fast flourishes and agile combat styles in either one or two hands by medium or larger sized creatures.
