Japanese Billhooks

Ubiquitous in rural Japan, the Japanese nata is serious multi-purpose green woodworking tool.

Like many green woodworking tools they are comparatively ineffective on dry hardwoods but will sail through fresh green ash or sycamore beautifully with the ability to easily limb, or even fell, a small tree.

The combination of flat bevels (allowing shallow angle cuts) and a slightly cambered edge (giving more bite at steeper angles) makes the nata an incredibly versatile tool.
