Introducing the Ikeuchi Hamono Outdoor Hatchet - the perfect tool for outdoor enthusiasts and adventure seekers. Crafted with precision and designed for durability, this hatchet is a must-have for anyone who values quality craftsmanship and reliable performance.

Whether you're camping, hiking, or simply tackling backyard projects, the Ikeuchi Hamono Outdoor Hatchet is built to handle it all. Its compact size and lightweight nature make it easy to carry and maneuver, while the well-balanced design ensures precise and efficient cutting every time.

The Ikeuchi Hamono Outdoor Hatchet with its thick kuro-uchi blade and distinctive green paracord knot handle is the epitome of rugged elegance, providing you with a reliable companion for all your outdoor adventures.

The yamanata, a type of nata tool unique to Japan, serves as the foundation for this remarkable hatchet. Resembling a small axe or hatchet, it excels at cutting and splitting wood, making it an indispensable tool for outdoor enthusiasts. Its versatile design also allows for effective clearing of brush and vines, akin to a machete.

At the heart of this exceptional hatchet is a traditional Japanese Shirogami steel. Meticulously forged using traditional Japanese techniques, the blade is made from high-quality carbon steel, ensuring exceptional strength and sharpness.

Its kuro-uchi finish not only adds a rustic charm, but also enhances the blade's resilience to corrosion and wear.

What truly sets this hatchet apart is its green paracord knot handle design. Carefully wrapped with premium paracord in an eye-catching green color, the handle provides a comfortable and secure grip even in wet or slippery conditions.
Fun fact: The paracord also serves as a versatile survival tool, as it can be unraveled and used for various emergencies in the great outdoors.

For added protection, the hatchet comes with a hand-shaped saya (knife sheath) made from magnolia wood, which is an optimal choice for safeguarding the high-carbon steel blade.

☝️ Japanese kitchen knives in our store are handmade from natural materials. Slight variations in color, texture, weight and other dimensions are possible. We try to give a good photographic representation of our products, however computer screen resolution and colors do vary, so products might not look exactly as they are seen on screen.


Knives made of carbon steels can, due to their low chromium (Cr) content, discolor and develop patina. The knife is the most sensitive when it is still new and a patina had not developed yet, but later, patina will protect the blade. These types of knives require a touch more care:

✔ Wipe it regularly with a clean and dry cloth (you can also do this during use).
✔ After use, rinse it with lukewarm water and wipe it dry.
✔ Coat it regularly with knife maintenance oil or plain refined sunflower oil.
✔ Store the knife by wrapping it in paper which will absorb moisture and protect the blade.

A patina is a thin layer that forms on the surface of oxidized steel and protects it from further oxidation. The patina should not be confused with rust. Patina protects the blade, while rust causes corrosion and deterioration of material, so it should be removed (see Rust erasers).

→ For in-depth information about patina, read our dedicated post on patina.


Blade wear depends on the quality of steel, usage and maintenance of the blade. Japanese knives are made of high-quality steels. Follow these tips to keep your Japanese knife in top-notch shape:

✔ Use a wooden, plastic or rubber cutting board.
✔ After use, wash the knives and wipe them dry.
✔ For storage, use a knife holder or a protective knife sheath (saya).
✔ A good cutting technique is your best bet to prolong sharpness.
✔ Use sharpening stones to sharpen the knife.

❗️Don’t leave the knife in the sink. Wash it by hand.
❗️Don’t wash the knife in the dishwasher.
❗️Don’t use the knife on glass, ceramics, marble or steel surfaces.
❗️Don’t scrape the food off the cutting board with the edge of the blade. Use the spine of the knife instead.
❗️Knife is a tool intended for specific use - cutting food. It is not a can opener, screwdriver, trowel, wire cutter, hammer etc.
