NATA

NATA TRANSLATES LOOSELY AS HATCHET.

NATA WERE A TOOL USED FOR TRIMMING PLANTS AND SUCH.

THEIR OWNERSHIP WAS SUPPOSEDLY RESTRICTED TO THE UPPER CLASS.

THIS ONE IS A NICE REPRESENTATIVE PIECE, EXHIBITING FAIRLY SKILLED WORKMANSHIP.

THEY ARE UNIQUE AS THEY ARE SIGNED ON THE SHINOGI JI OPPOSED TO THE NAKAGO.

NOTE THE CUTTING EDGE IS ON THE REVERSE CURVE, OPPOSITE WHAT YOU WOULD NORMALLY SEE ON SWORDS.

THE CUTTING EDGE IS KATAKIRIHA.

THE HADA IS ITAME AND THE HAMON IS SUGUHA.
