    Mizuno Jigata Masakari Bearded Hatchet

    The Jigata Masakari by Mizuno-san is an incredibly robust, heavy duty hatchet. This blade has one of the thickest bevels we've ever seen, making it ideal for hatchet splitting. The straight bevel also means you could do some wood-working or even bushcrafting with it, as you can slip your hand behind the beard for more control.

    Steel Hardness 55-56 HRC
    Handle Material Burned Oak
    Handle Length 14"/ 36cm
    Head Weight
    700g (1.5lb)
    Total Weight
    850g (1.87lbs)
    Grind Style Straight edge with chisel grind
    Made in Japan

    About Mizuno-san - Mizuno Seisakusho was founded in 1937 as a blacksmith factory that specialized in the forging of plane blades for woodworking. As traditional woodworking waned, they started forging more axes and hatchets, experimenting with different shapes and handles. The current owner, Isao Mizuno is a certified traditional craftsman in the region and crafts a wide array of hatchets and metal-working tools.

    Brand Mizuno Seisakusho

    Did You Know? Mizuno axes are hung on a Japanese oak handle, which means that in dryer climates, your axe head may come loose! This is normal and can be easily fixed! Take a rubber mallet & gently hammer the bottom of the axe handle.  This will "counter sink" the axe head. Then, using any hammer, gently tap the exposed metal ring sticking out of the top of your axe head. This will sink the wedge deeper into the handle, expanding the wood and negating any wobbles!
