This really has been my favourite over the last few months. It's not a sickle as we know it, more a hand hoe; use in a scythe-like movement to deal with emergent weeds and angle down to deal with the bigger weeds. Great for getting in around and behind the tomato plants. All the time knowing the copper in the bronze is doing good for your plants and the soil and, at the same time, discouraging those annoying slugs and snails. It's with me all day, in my back pocket when not in use.
