NATA is versatile enough to reduce vines, limbs and logs to a more manageable or productive size. The heft of the 0.22″ thick blade allows it chop through dense wood while the sharp edge bites into even the most fibrous material. The tip is squared off like a chisel and measures 0.20″ thick, so it can definitely be used to pry if necessary. The angle of the blade and excellent, ergonomic rubber handle make this an effective tool and one you will enjoy using. Expect the NATA to be a durable and long lasting tool with a blade you can resharpen and a custom-fitted, durable plastic sheath.
