Thank you for such great service and support. I am very impressed with how quickly you respond to customers.
Traditionally there would be many regional variations of slashers and brushing hooks, each regions producing their own design. However, they all fulfil a similar purpose.
The 5mm thick blade on this tool has been forged to a thin edge making it suitable to cut soft vegetation such as grasses and nettles.
Woody material is likely to blunt the edge. To cut material that is more woody chose a slasher.
Handle length in round unvarnished ash:
The hande fits into the blade via a robust socket, held in place with a single rivet.
In the last image there is a comparison between the Hereford Brushing Hook (LH) and the General Pattern Slasher (RH).
The most important maintenance issue with this tool is to keep it sharp!
Remember however, although Morris make excellent tools, they will need some grinding and sharpening before they can be used.
THIS TOOL WILL NEED GRINDING AND SHARPENING BEFORE USE.
