Each sickle, kitchen knife becomes tough knife after we were forged because we beat and are stretched out. Even if width of blade is wide, and sickle has handle by "turf charge account" "fishing" horizontally, the sickle body stands diagonally, and it features that harvested grass is put at hand
Shinshu hand scythes and knives derive their incredible strength from the fact that each one is hammered into shape one by one after the metal is forged. The blade of the hand scythe is wide, and thanks to the particular angle of the blade and handle, even if grass is cut while the blade is held level, the grass falls conveniently into the hand, which a unique characteristic of the Shinshu hand scythe.
How to make
Heat steel becoming knife in furnace, and stop to hit mallet (soil); hit, and stretch out, and hit, and make wide geoshite form. Sickle "catches" "turf charge account" with single edge, and machete touches slim groove called single edge nataniha gutter. We perform work called mud coating, and quenching quenches. We attach blade and perform work to polish, and to finish by hand.
The steel used for the blade is heated in a forge, and then hammered out to create the shape of the blade. During the hammering process a scythe blade is given a single edge, and the unique angle and curve which allows convenient cutting, and a hatchet blade is given a single edge and a long narrow groove. In the tempering step, the blade is coated in a special clay and then rapidly cooled. Finally, the edge is ground and the blade polished by hand to finish the process.
