Similar fittings also in Thailand, and in China. China being large and diverse, it isn't surprising to see varied range of fittings on Chinese examples. Korean ones have fittings similar to northern Chinese examples, SE Asian ones are often similar to southern Chinese examples. Thai blades can look a lot like Japanese blades (Imports re-mounted locally? The Japanese exported naginata to SE Asia).
