Beautiful, lightweight grass and weed sickle, hand forged by Munetoshi with a quality white paper steel blade clad with a layer of soft iron for strength. The blade is Echigo-style, which is a wider blade that drops the grass at the end of the stroke, rather than dropping it as it's cut. This results in a tidier operation. With a slight angle and a single bevel, right-handers can use it with a forehand stroke, left-handers have to play backhand.
Features a stunning flamed chestnut handle, with a grainy texture for grip and a light weight.
