Not for heavy grasses or thick brush.
Attached to pole for hillside weeds and it works well.

Bought this tool to replace a favorite German made hand scythe that I misplaced. The blade on this Japanese tool is top quality stainless steel. The serrated edge was perfect for cutting away light brush from our gardens this autumn. The tool itself is lightweight and balanced. It's best suited for quick work on grasses and other similar material. I would not consider it on anything beyond 1/4" diameter. The one drawback compared to my old hand scythe is you don't get a large cutting radius, so I may consider one of the DeWit sickles for next year.

just what you need to beat back late summer weeds that have gotten out of control. light weight and easy to handle. SHARP!! easily takes down end of season sunflowers and invasive honeysuckle vines.

Really impressed with how the knife blade can free up vegetables from the vine. The only think I think that could be improved upon is the attachment of the blade to the handle - there is just a slight amount of play in there. Not a big deal unless dealing with thicker stems/stalks. For the price, this is probably an unbeatable sickle

This was inexpensive so I picked one up. Surprise, surprise!!! With a little bit of practice to develop a technique, it takes out smaller weeds, cuts non-woody stems, and trims up ornamental grasses in no time with little effort.
Be aware of its sharpness and treat it with respect. It's a powerful little tool.

This is an excellent tool. The price is more than reasonable.

The sickle was exactly what was pictured and described. It did the job as I expected.
The shipping was quick and the company was a pleasure to deal with.

I think that every Japanese hand tool I've ever used has been fantastic and this is no exception. Very sharp, solid but lightweight, just great

This is a very sharp, light blade. It cuts like mad, what it can cut. Good for very lightweight stuff but will not handle anything heavier than heavy grass. I tried it on 3/8 - 1/2" lettuce-leaf weeds, and it just lodges in the stalk like an axe in a tree. It just won't handle a tough stalk, but you could cut with it all day it's so light.

I live this tool! I've had it for over a year, it's retained it's sharpness with a year of hard use. Love it! I am ordering 3 more, gifts and one for my husband because we can't share.

Lightweight and EXTREMELY sharp. It's ideally suited to trim yucca which can jam even the finest pruners. The tool also excels in trimming cactus pads leaving clean cuts that heal easily.

I have been clearing a large patch of mature Cattails in a detention basin. We tried several tools but this one was clearly the best! Manual hedge clippers were a distant second because this serrated blade cut multiple plants easily and in a single stroke.

I have used this tool (have 3 of them) for the last two years for peeling off masses of vines from fence lines, slicing down stands of weeds all season long, trimming borders of plant bed with extreme ease, to using the tip of the blade to flick/cut out individual weeds. Really, I feel like Edward Scissorhands sometimes!
Tough and sturdy, takes a lot of use and abuse to dull the blade. Even when dull, still sickle is still good for rough hacking.
I just ordered 9 more. One for the farm, 2 for my personal use and 6 for the farm shareholders workers who wanted their own.
