Silky NATA Professional 240MM- Outback Edition (Double Edge)


Whether you’re camping, hunting, bushcrafting, or exploring the great outdoors, the NATA Outback hatchet is your trusted partner for any adventure.


The NATA Outback is built to handle the wild with confidence. Featuring a new Black Oxide process, this coating protects the entire blade, providing excellent durability against wear and rust. It also reduces shine and glare, offering additional stealth during hunting.

The non-slip rubberized grip dampens vibrations and directs more usable energy to the cutting edge, maximizing each swing and reducing fatigue. 

Handmade in Ono, Japan, the NATA is perfect for clearing vines, chopping wood, small logs and kindling for your campfire.

Well made knife/axe/machete. Whatever you call it, it’s well made and nicely balanced. But best of all is the fast shipping and well packaged. This is one site I’ll be back to.

A versatile edged tool

Recently picked up the Silky Nata 240 Outback Edition to be a one tool replacement for the Fiskars hatchet & the Ka-bar Jarosz Choppa in my packable trail maintenance kit (which also includes a Silky Bigboy saw).

Haven't had much chance to use it outside of delimbing a large fir that fell across a local trail but my impression is that it feels & swings like a cross between a European/Western-style hatchet & a big knife/short machete. In my hands, it chops almost (but not quite) as well as a European-style hatchet because of the blade's negative angle relative to the handle and its forward-heavy balance, and it clears brush just as well as a big knife/short machete because of its blade length (though its greater mass means I can't swing it for as long before fatigue sets in). So it's sort of a "jack of all trades, master of none" in the way all multitools are.

That said, I think some of that impression may be from my lack of experience in the use of a traditional Japanese hatchet like the Nata, and I am sure that it will become an effective single tool replacement for a European/Western hatchet and a big knife/short machete for my purposes as I become more familiar with its characteristics.

Silky Nata - hunting guide

I am very impressed by the fit, finish and indexing of the Nata shorter than I am used to, but it is one hell of a chopper and utility blade for my guiding pack. Easy to clean and a strong secure sheath that's easily accessed at the bottom of my pack. Fills the gaps for my needs. Very impressed with the blades durability when quartering a larger game species.

Silky Nata Outback Edition

I just received this beast, it feels amazing and like it can tear through anything and it looks cool as hell too.

I tried the original edition of the Nata 3 weeks ago and just had to get one of these, I haven't used it yet but I'm sure as hell going to put it to use during my next winter camp in a week.

I'd also like to say that Axeman has been super helpful and answered all my questions within seconds which I found nicely surprising.
