Cool tool

I found a few of these in one of the sheds. I'm guessing it's a two-sided ...... sort of scythe? I tried it out last week when I was re-clearing an old path. You just sort of wave it back and forth, and things just die in front of it. It's really handy!

I can't really search google to find out what it is, until they come up with a picture search. So if anyone knows what it is, let me know. Thanks.


  1. Your tool is, indeed, a weed whacker. We have one just like it. For getting into areas too small for a bigger scythe. Neat little tool, eh?

  2. It's often called a grass whip. We had the heavier-duty one when I was a kid (probably from my grandfather's house).

  3. Thanks for the info! Sad that my local hardware store or Home Depot doesn't sell these.


    They have em, if they're close.
