Combining functionality and elegance, the Tucana sickle, with its beautifully shaped handle of oiled ash wood, is simply a joy to use. The curved blade is made from a copper alloy, cold hardened for durability, and sharp on both the concave inner and convex outer edges, so it can be swung back and forth and cut both ways; it is light and effortless to use with minimal friction. The metal will not break even under considerable stress and can easily be bent back into shape, reworked and sharpened. This hand sickle will last for years, developing a graceful bronze patina over time, without rusting.
A practical garden tool, ideal for gathering herbs, cutting broccoli stems and harvesting salad leaves, or even for cutting mistletoe. The outer blade is also used for cutting clean scions and notches when grafting. Being copper also inherently reduces the risk of any infection spreading.
