This is a weeding sickle from bladesmith Hounen Kihan. Specifically designed for cutting long, grassy weeds in and around rice fields, it can also be used for general gardening and grass-cutting.
It is made of a special composite steel that joins a base of ultra-soft steel with a high-grade cutlery steel.
The strong and sharp blade will make light work of most weeds and grass in your garden, and can even tackle some thicker vines. The curve of the blade has been inspired by Japanese daruma dolls.
