A well curved blade with a deep belly, it has a hooked tip and stone point like the Fux “Styria” blade but is lighter.
This is a nice multi-purpose blade. I have been really enjoying using this blade to mow along our grassy tracks – the shape makes it easy to set up and mow with and it is forgiving of uneven ground. This blade is also nice for trimming work and mowing in orchards, forest gardens etc where the curve tip will help when mowing around obstacles. I also like using it in the meadow later in the haying season when the grasses are tougher / more tangled and laid.
The 70 or 75cm length gives a good “bite forward”, allowing you to move forward more with each stroke. Shorter lengths are useful in more confined circumstances.
This blade cuts grass and fleshy weeds with ease. It’s lighter build makes it less suitable than the Styria for rougher work.
