Medieval Sickle from High Carbon Steel, hand-forged

The sickle ranks among the oldest agricultural tools in the world. With earliest traces reaching far back to the Neolithic, it still continues to see service to this very day, for example to cut smaller quantities of cereals, herbs or grass. In the Middle Ages, this tool with crescent-shaped blade, sharp inside edge and backwards angled handle was an indispensable farming implement to every peasant. It was typically used for reaping crops or gathering livestock feed for the cold months.

In addition, the sickle is often associated with witches, healers and ancient Celtic druids, said to have been known for ranging the woods with sickle (or Boline) in hand, collecting mistletoe and medicinal herbs and plants for their potions.

Our medieval sickle is made of high carbon steel. The hand-forged 2 mm flat steel blade has a rounded point and a just slightly sharpened, hammered (or peened) edge. The forging marks were intentionally left on the blade, lending a rustic, authentic character to the sickle. The 5 mm square steel handle is elegantly curved and terminates in a small spiral. It is partially twisted, which does not only make for visual appeal, but also improves grip. Its particular shape allows for easy fastening to your garment and also leaves room for customisation, for example your own leather-wrapping.

This fine blacksmithing piece is perfectly suited for camp life at medieval re-enactment events and will make your portrayal of a peasant, a herb woman or even a druid look all the more genuine.

Please note:
Above specs may slightly vary from piece to piece. As this is a hand-forged product, each sickle is a very unique piece and slight variations in shape and/or surface finish are quite normal. Above pictures are thus for reference only.
The steel used here is not rust-proof and might show slight surface tarnishing in places. We recommend you to maintain the sickle on a regular basis, for example by using Ballistol Universal Oil, which is ideally suited for steel care.
