Japanese Nata Tool
After having my eye on this tool for months, I decided to purchase it. And I am so glad that I did. I have quite a few Barebones items in my arsenal and I love each and every one of them. The striking beauty, the attention to detail and the functionality are second to none. I've used this tool to knock back the briars, chop out the tree choking vines, and clear walking paths in the woods to haul firewood on our property. It had held up well and I expect it to provide years of use.
Haven't used it yet. It feels and looks high quality.
Sharp, balanced handles well. I have large hands and would like the handle larger but it handles well as is. Construction is excellent. Shipping was fast. Highly recommend for anyone who works or plays in the woods.
For the price, I would have expected it to come sharpened. Now I have to find someone to sharpen it and spend more money.
I love this tool. Compact but heavy enough to cut through the vines I’m dealing with on my trees but, light enough to control the depth of cut. A great tool to have in the woods.
