This is the heaviest of the Schroeckenfux blades. It is only 39 cm long, but much chunkier than our other blades. It also comes with a hook. This is the most useful manual tool we’ve seen to deal with blackberry or lantana. The scythe sweeps through the canes. The hook, especially when sharpened, cuts the thickest part of the blackberry off at the base. You can use it for other woody weeds and even tree suckers. Because of the power you can exert with this blade, we only sell it with the metal snath.
We recommend sharpening the blackberry blades and hooks with a second cut half round file then honing the burr off with one of our whetstones.
