Description

Although there are two types of sickle (serrated and smooth) for the rice harvesting is above all used the serrated type; with a curved blade of 25-30 cm and with a wooden handle, the sickle is used to cut the rice plant at the base of its stalk. The hook is a compromise between sickle and scythe and facilitates the harvesting operations. The sickle in figure 10 is used in a distinctive way: the horn is used in the gathering clumps of rice, where it is gathered in the crotch; turning the piece over, the knife blade cuts the gathered clump.
