Slashers and Grasshooks

Slashers and grasshooks are traditional tools designed primarily to cut back overgrown vegetation at arms reach.

Many regional patterns have emerged over the centuries, generally each one with a specialist job to perform.

There are few tool makers still inspired to produce slashers, fortunately Morris of Dunsford still make them in very small numbers. Even the more obscure patterns.

Made from EN9 high carbon steel so its possible to create a fine edge that will be durable. However, before being put to work they will require grinding, sharpening and honing to create an edge.

If you don’t have the knowledge and equipment to create an edge yourself, we can do this for you.

We custom make tough leather sheaths for all our slashers and grasshooks.
