So, I've looked and looked for the proper name for this weapon ... I'll correct the title once I find it again!

Used: pearl gold Katana (that came with the CS Ninja) and the Pharoah's Quest Golden Staff:

We cut the 'crown' off of the staff and used it for the Samurai's helmet.
Then cut the handle off of the katana - and super glued the blade to the staff.

It looks awesome, sorry for the blurry-ish pic.

That is one great looking weapon! I have tried and seen numerous ways of making that weapon, with various levels of success, but that may be the best looking I have seen yet. Also, the "proper name" for that type of weapon is either a naginata or a nagamaki.

The helmet crest (I beleive they are called maedate) looks good also. You have given me some great ideas for further diversifying my own samurai.

Awesome! I may have to use this sometime.

Alas, I have no samurai helms. Ohh well, now the shaolin monks will get nanginatas.

I might call it a glaive as well. That's awesome.

Yep, Naginata. Similar European weapons were called glaives. It would also be considered a subclass of polearm. ;)
And a lovely polearm it is, too! Looks very good. But the staff topper as a kabuto crest is super cool and I admit that caught my eye first... that looks awesome!

Wow, everthing about this is awesome, the horse, the samurai, and the naginata. I think those were also called war scythes sometimes.
