Just under 25cm long and weighing just over half a kilogram, you’ll find many uses around the home, garden and campsite, from fashioning stakes to splitting kindling. It’s not designed for felling trees or splitting full-size logs, but, with its protective (to you and the blade) leather sheath, you can sling it in your Kantan when you head to the beach or campsite to tackle all manner of tasks.
The pleasingly ergonomic Japanese white oak handle encourages you to hold it lower down for controlled chopping actions, like brashing a conifer, or higher up, just below the head, for smaller, controlled chipping and planing.
