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.
