Novel Use for Old Razor Blades
UTILIZING old safety razor blades to cut grass, the inventor of this sickle designed it so that it folds up like a jack knife, thus protecting the sharp edge. The old razor blades are slipped into a groove and tightened by small screws. If one of the blades is damaged in any manner, it can easily be replaced without expense and with little trouble.
In addition to providing a practical use for razor blades that are too dull for shaving, the sickle cuts grass and weeds much more rapidly than one of average make. When ready for use on a lawn, there is no danger that the knife will close on the fingers gripping the handle. It is locked securely by a spring-catch.
