Italian Smooth Sickle
These top-quality forged steel sickles are made in Italy by the Falci company. These feature steel shanks that come all the way through the wooden handle and are bent over, for maximum resistance to the handle coming loose.
Smooth sickles are best for cutting grass, weeds, etc. that you are simply letting fall to the ground. A great alternative to a weed-eater for cutting around garden beds, et, Quiet, no fumes, provides exercise, and starts every time! Very few companies make sickles with this quality any more.
