This Japanese sickle, or Kama, proves to be more useful than what you could imagine! It will happily cut small amounts of cover crop, grain, or trim grass in tight areas where you might not want a weed whacker. Harvesting bundles of lemon balm, mint or comfrey happens quickly with this one. Works well for nettles, too. Light enough for grass, but a bit thicker than the light blade if you need to whack something a little tougher, like a mature bull thistle.
Due to it’s light weight and unique design, you can use this tool in using different positions for long amounts of time without having much fatigue.
