Description

The Morris GENERAL PATTERN Slasher is a long handled edge tool designed to cut overgrown vegetation.

A tough tool that, if kept sharp, will cut material that verges on being woody.

The blade is curved but in-line with the handle, i.e. straight.

Like all Morris tools the cutting bevels are long without shoulders and ground to about 25 degrees.

The robust oval handle, made in unvarnished ash, is riveted into the blade’s welded socket, 890mm (35″) long.

Total length 1320mm (52″).

Tool making has been an industry at the Morris Dunsford (Devon) works for more than 100 years and in our opinion these tools are far better than anything else on the market.  This is despite the need for some grinding/filing and honing to remove flats and/or burrs on the edge.

If you would like us to prepare the Morris GENERAL PATTERN Slasher for you so its is ready to use, select the WORKSHOP SERVICE – Sharpening option above.

Once the edge has been established, sharpen with canoe stones. See below.

Leather sheaths made by the WOODSMITH leather guy available for this tool. Essential in our view.

Down-to-earth tool designed for professional use and long life.
