A Vintage-inspired Japanese Blade

The Japanese Nata Tool is a wide bladed knife that is similar to a machete but slightly smaller. In Japan, the nata is typically used to strip bark, clear brush, plank wood, or process kindling. Barebone’s take on the traditional nata features heritage-quality materials such as a stainless steel blade and a solid steel core that extends through the length of the hardwood handle. The Nata comes with a handsome sheath.

What We Like about the Nata Tool

We like the balanced swing-weight of the Nata. You’ll find a lot of cheap machetes out there that look the part but in practice don’t swing well. Because the Nata is a full-tang blade (that is, the steel in the Nata extends all the way through the handle) it feels both really balanced and quite powerful for its size.
