This blade has a deep belly similar to the 128, but a less hooked tip than the other Falci blades we are currently stocking. It is useful general purpose blade around the holding for fleshy weeds and grass. As a lighter weight blade it is not suitable for rough work. We have used it to mow grass along the edges of a forest garden and to control weeds in between the plants.
It’s less hooked tip and more even curvature along it’s length gives this blade a deeper bite forward into the vegetation for a given hafting angle and a different feel from the 128 when using it as a trimming blade.
While a hooked tip can be useful when mowing up to and against an obstacle, a less hooked tip makes it easier to use the blade to trim in between closely spaced obstacles, for examples hooking out a few weeds between fruit bushes that you are otherwise mowing around. The fact that this blade does not have a stone point is also useful in this situation, as it means the blade has a cutting edge almost to the very tip
