- This Grass Sickle is one tool I wouldn't be without. Review by Maddy Harland
This Grass sickle is one tool I wouldn't be without. It is light but sturdy with a serrated blade. I use it to cut comfrey for the compost bins and to scythe a mound we have in the garden that is covered in marjoram and knapweed. A real wildlife habitat.
It works well for patches of nettle, wildflowers that have gone to seed and other robust stalks. I also clear meadow grasses under our fruit trees. The sickle is small enough to handle in tight spaces - important if you don't want to damage trunks. It easily achieves the tasks required. I have never had to sharpen it either, the edge holds well, even with repeated use on tough stalks. Recommended. (Posted on 02/09/2011)
