Introduction: Nata (Japanese Small Machete/Mountain Knife)-Style Knife

This is a quick Nata-style knife I made four days ago. I used stainless steel because I don't have anything other than that. Its not that good, I know, because I wasn't really serious in making this and the reason I made this is simply because I was bored. I know, the handle is a little too long for the blade, but as I said before the only reason I made this is because I was bored.

Well, enjoy! If you like the slideshow, rate it 5 please! Thanks.

    I like Japanese perfection and patience and when it come to knifes they are masters, being bored and sharpening a piece steel hardly allows you to call your blade a "nata", a single edged forged blade thats very sharp.Thanks

    Nothing wrong with this knife... i like the sleek look to it and the long handle suits it somehow. Cool knife,thanks for posting.

    I think you made some valid points, but they are overshadowed by your butchery of the grammar.

    oh, yea but it would work on like soft plants or something wouldn't it? The joke was that the tanto cut through a plastic toy car engine by the way. =3 it's funny cos it's plastic...

    dude, i was joking about the tanto. and i was saying i think you could at least cut some things with that knife, carbon content won't affect a knife this small much.

    it looks functional enough as a knife to me.

    I'd like to know how you made the handle and how you made the blade. when you get a chance, please write down the instructions and send them to me. I'd greatly appreciate it.

    thanks.

    Ey, where do you get your metals from? Great slideshow btw. Addy

    Everywhere. Hardware store, the dump, sidewalk, etc.
