This is a thick, heavy duty Schroeckenfux blade, 60 mm wide and about the same gauge as a light billhook. It is capable of cutting most woody plants up to a centimeter in diameter, or bigger, depending on the species. We don’t recommend using it for grass. It is typically used to work in areas where there are small saplings or fruit tree suckers. Care must be taken to keep the blade sharp as heavy use of a blunt blade on tough material could damage the snath.
Our bush blades we choose to sharpen with a second cut half round file then hone the burr off with one of our whetstones.
