The Nata is a cutting tool specific to Japan with an outstanding sharpness. It is mainly used for forestry and gardening and has been around in Japan for a very long time. This project is a Nata-style kitchen knife, a hybrid of the classic kitchen knife and the Nata, that is easy to use around the kitchen daily, but takes advantage of the Nata's incredible sharpness! It is a very versatile tool that can cut meat, fish and vegetables, but also logs, branches and bamboo, easily switching from cooking to bushcraft.

A Specially Designed Sheath
Outstanding sharpness also means the tool must be handled with care and caution! For this purpose, it comes with a special sheath for outdoor use. This accessory, made by a sewing craftsman in Kurashiki, Okayama Prefecture, in Japan, is made of Japanese denim fabric and leather and is the product of a collaboration between Japanese craftsmen. It is handmade, just as the knife is, and the denim from Kurashiki that is used in its making is renowned worldwide!
