Falci 128 Grass / Trimming Blade (50cm second)
A factory second Falci 128 50cm blade. This blade has specklings of rust under the lacquer across the body of the blade (see photo, hover over for zoom). This will not affect the blade in use. Any rust markings on the cutting edge can be cleaned off with a Garryflex block or emery cloth before use.
This is a nice multi-purpose blade which sets up and mows very easily.
It cuts grass and fleshy weeds with ease. The lightness of the blade and the fine finish it is given by Falci means that, if well treated, it will keep mowing well longer before needing peening.
It’s lighter build makes it less suitable for rough work, or if you are likely to encounter hidden bricks or metal work in your garden. A Styria blade is a better choice in these circumstances.
The longer length (70 or 75cm) is useful for mowing in open meadows and grassy areas, whilst also being useful for trimming work around trees etc. It is especially useful later in the growing season or in meadows that have thicker vegetation/ coarser grasses. The deep belly of the blade helps it “float” over undulations and uneveness in the ground.
The shorter lengths make very nice blades for garden and trimming work.
Preparing your new blade for mowing
All new blades should have the lacquer cleaned off the cutting edge to prevent it clogging the sharpening stone. See this post for further details.
