Diamond Sharpener
This fine-grade sharpener is embedded with the earth's hardest mineral - diamonds. It is excellent for sharpening secateurs and loppers without the hassle of taking them apart. It is also useful for scissors, shears all knives and other tools which need sharpening. The millions of diamond cutting surfaces on this professional diamond sharpener are permanently bonded in a stainless steel alloy. Performs the combined functions of conventional stones, steels and ceramic sticks quickly and easily, without oil or water.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE ON KNIVES: lay blade flat on diamond surface, elevate blade spine slightly (approx thickness of blade itself), rub in a circular motion, periodically alternating sides. Start with a firm pressure to establish an edge, once edge established finish with light pressure.
Hand Sickles
A sickle is a hand-held agricultural tool with a variously curved blade typically used for harvesting grain crops or cutting succulent forage chiefly for feeding livestock (either freshly cut or dried as hay). The genealogy of sickles with serrated edge reaches back to the Stone Age, when individual pieces of flint were first attached to a 'blade body' of wood or bone.

The diversity of sickles that have been used around the globe is staggering. Between the dawn of the Iron Age and present, hundreds of region-specific variants of this basic forage-cutting tool were forged of iron and later steel.
One noteworthy feature of sickles is that their edges have been made in two very distinct manners/patterns - smooth or serrated. While both can (albeit with a different technique) be used for cutting either green grass or mature cereals, it is the serrated sickle that still dominates the duty of harvesting grain/grasses.

The Green Harvest range of sickles are simple and easy to use making them a must have for the garden. The curved sharp serrated blade type is typically drawn when cutting while the smooth edge type is swung. Just select the one that suits your job or purchase the kit to try them all. When you use one of these tools it reminds us that whether we are cutting grasses with edible grains to harvest or lemongrass as mulch for our orchard or perhaps arrowroot and comfrey for our animals or compost bins we are supported on the shoulders of our ancestors.
