Real Deal Froe - Knife! Not a novelty item or toy!

This Japanese Koshi Nata Froe-knife is a real tool and not a novelty item. It is extremely well made and quite sharp. IT seems to hold its edge quite well. I wish the handle were longer, not so I could hold farther from the blade, but so that there was more counter balance. Because, I am holding close to the blade, i am sensitive to the groove and the closing side of the rivets, therefore I sanded the rivets and the grooves to be more comfortable. Being able to sand and adjust the handle to ones personal ergonomics is one of the hallmarks of a great tool, I advise keeping the Japanese sticker on the handle, It is artistic and the glue is quite difficult to remove.

  • A high quality & heavy duty "Koshi Nata" Japanese knife hand-forged in one solid piece. The blade of this knife is laminated to a hardness of HRC 63 & is extra sharp. The blade has a single edge bevel & the back of the blade is extra thick measuring 1/4" thick. The sturdy handle is made of Japanese White Oak & comes with a black vinyl sheath & snap with a wooden insert inside for the knife. Koshinata waist hatchet knife is great for many uses including use as a froe, a heavy-duty whacking garden knife, a machete, use as a hatchet for kindling, a cleaver, & many other uses. A heavy duty multi-purpose laminated knife.    Made in Japan.
