Thread: Hand Tool for cutting long grass?

  1. #1

    Hand Tool for cutting long grass?

    .

    I thought there was a hand tool that was made for cutting grass (not a scythe). You basically sweep it back and forth and it cuts it. It's like a "T" with little teeth. I would like to find one so I can make some grass trails. I'm looking for a low-priced option to cut this grass.




    This is the grass I would like to cut.

    In Ms we call them different. A keiser blade is a long handled hawk bill knife job. The sling blade from back in my day is exactly as he described it. Shorter handle with a serrated blade running at an angle with a brace at each end. Google Sling Blade Tool $15 and up.

    Regardless of what you cut it with. That is a chigger patch if I have ever seen one. Hose down with permethrin before you get in there.

    i may be off base, but why not use a weed eater? yeah, it has gas smell, but it will dissapate quickly. I would rather put out gas smell than hours of human scent from sweating all day.

    I aways heard them called "yo-yos" by the old folks around here. Tractor Supply, Home Depot, and Lowes all carry them, as well as just about all the farm and ranch stores around here.
