Made of bamboo, this simple tool embodies the efficient and beautiful use of natural materials. All one piece, the handle is from a stalk of bamboo, with the sickle part made of an offshooting branch. A small sheet of sharpened metal forms the cutting edge. It’s ergonomic, economic, effective and beautiful. Possibly from Laos; definitely from the hills. A lovely addition to a tool collection.
