I have a small hand sickle like the one you have pictured and I like it.
I grab a whole handful of whatever I'm cutting and slice through it.
usually I am cutting something to lay on my beds to camouflage the scent
of my freshly planted things. If I do this with the sweet potatoes,
there is a strong scented green weed that grows about waist high in that
area, but has no flower or seed head that I like to use. It must be a
pioneer weed of some sort because it will take over any cleared area
quickly, along with the lamb quarters.
