All in outstanding original condition with that sweeping hand forged iron blade and peened on turned maple grip, so indicative to the American Colonial and Revolutionary War era, this all original period sickle measures 13 5/8 inches across (from maple grip to blade tip) the sweep of its 1 ½ inch wide blade. The grip remains solidly in place with a rich natural patina and the hand wrought iron blade is free of chips and dings even retaining telltale carbon patches that result from working the hot high carbon iron as required for bladed tools and weapons. Forged with a heavy 3/16 inch thick ribbed back for extra strength, this heavier than the usual grass sickle, was clearly intended to handle clearing light brush with the heavier growth requiring use of the classic fascine knife. Felling axes, fascine knives and hand sickles such as this were critical tools of the colonial farm and as implements of war they were used by the military in clearing land for the building of fortification, campsites and movement of troops and equipment. How such a relic can survive in such condition is commensurate to the rarity of such a fine period working tool. An outstanding display item on the wall or set in with period treasures of the period. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
