Silky's Nata 240 is a hard working friend when you have some light lumberjacking to do out in the bush. This robust machete is heavy but well balanced. I like the handle's good grip and the nice blade shape. Another good feature is the quick lock conecting the sheath with the belt loop. This makes it easy to choose if you want to carry the tool on your hip or inside the backpack. The Japanese axe Nata comes in four different sizes, from 150 mm to 240 mm blades, and comes in bouth single edge and double edge (as on the knife I used)..
