That looks seriously intimidating!

How effective do you find the sickles? I've always wanted one.

the hooky one was good on small bracken type foliage but when it came to the big stuff the j shaped one was second to none....

I did something similar with a sickle/slashhook. I've never hurt myself with a machete though. Yet. :)

I agree with your assessment though - sickle for small foliage and greenstuff, machete for bigger things and wood. Nothing chops wood like a sharp, heavy machete.

Thanx Mat, i found i obtained most damage and discomfort from the flying debris as my arms wildly flailed around me!

I'm going to wear a cape next time!
