Barebones Japanese Nata Tool

May 24, 2018

Category: Gear

For all intents and purposes, the machete is a fairly inelegant tool. Yes, it get’s backcountry chopping jobs done, but they don’t exactly look all that refined. That is, unless you count Barebones Living’s Japanese Nata Tool amongst them.

Built to handle all the same tasks a machete can handle (and more, thanks to its chisel-style tip), this Nata is the perfect jungle cleaver blade both in functionality and style. It features a 12-inch full-tang stainless steel blade that’s super easy to sharpen, mated to a hardwood walnut-finished handle. It also comes with a belt-mountable sheath for swift access and easy carry, making for a superbly handsome backcountry blade. And you can get one for $65.

Purchase: $65
