You are in the right location to get a replacement blade for the New Silky Nata Outback 240mm Black Replacement Blade. But I couldn’t help thinking that…
Perhaps you are a woodworker and love the look of the new Silky Nata Black version but want to add your own touch with a different handle. Because even I can see the joy in shaping a piece of walnut, myrtle, or black bean into a handle. A handle that is shaped exactly for my hand.
I can just see the look on my friend’s face. “Where’d you get that”. I just smile.

What do Homing Pigeons and Miyamoto Musashi, considered one of the greatest and most famous Japanese samurai of all time have in common?
Ah! I see you think this is a trick. Perhaps it is, but there is definitely a connection.
Miyamoto Musashi was a ronin. A samurai without a master. He is celebrated in Japan through stories of his unique double-bladed swordsmanship and undefeated record in his 61 duels.
The connection is Triiron tetraoxide. It is used to protect samurai armour and the new Silky Nata Outback.
The colour of a samurai’s armour, in many cases, is black. And the new Silky Nata 240mm Black Outback Hatchet Axe is, you guessed it… Black.
But what about Homing Pigeons?
This one is a bit trickier.
Triiron tetraoxide, or Fe3O4, is a BLACK powder. In fact, it is the basis of a black pigment called Mars Black.
Nanocrystals of triiron tetraoxide are magnetic and found in certain bacteria, and the sensory dendritic cells in the upper beaks of homing pigeons, allowing them to sense the Earth’s magnetic field.
Now this begs the question. Will your Silky Nata Black Outback Hatchet Axe be able to find its way home utilizing Triiron tetraoxide and the Earth’s magnetic field? Hmmm… Not really something I am going to try.
But I do know that the Triiron tetraoxide will protect your Silky Nata Black, the same way it has protected Japanese armour, from the heady days of Musashi in the 1500s until now.
