Of all the hatchets, I'd choose this one.
Manos the Greek.
Ishitsuki style nata hatchet with rope-lashed handle. Our driver Manos's eyes lit up when he held this the first time, stirred no doubt by memories of his Cretan childhood - this is one of those hatchets that reaches right back into some primeval past. In Japan it's for general satoyama work (the managed forests around rural villages).
- Rope lashed
- Double bevelled
