Use a Japanese Sickle 1x1

Updated: July 2018

A Japanese sickle is an excellent tool for cutting grass in tight areas, around trees or any time you don’t feel like firing up a mower or string trimmer.

It’s also an efficient tool for cutting comfrey, harvesting nettle, mint, lemon balm, rosemary, oregano or cutting down a cover crops on a small scale.  In many instances, it is much faster than using a pair of pruners.

An added bonus:  It’s easy to maintain and requires no fuel.

In this video, I demonstrate a few ways you can use a Japanese sickle and offer some tips and tricks to help you along the way.  You can purchase a sickle, here.
