What’s a Naginata?

People often ask about the weapon we use and so when I found this on Facebook I thought it might be helpful in showing the differences between, for example, a naginata (long handle, shorter blade) and a nagamaki (equal length blade and handle) and yari (spear) as well as a host of other Japanese weapons.
