A short grass blade for trimming work, weeding and mowing narrow paths.
The Luxor blades don’t have stone points, so it’s easier to get the tip of the blade close in to mow vegetation growing next to obstacles. This makes them useful for mowing along a raised edge or around posts and trees.
The less hooked profile of the 50cm blade enables it to mow more grass in a stroke compared to a more hooked blade of a similar length (eg Falci 128 50cm).
In general we find the 50cm blade a good length in our large garden. The 40cm blade is handy in very tight areas such as “weeding” between closely spaced plants or for very narrow paths (2ft or less).
Both of these blades are relatively sturdy and therefore versatile in use. Whilst primarily built for grass and weeds, they manage rougher plants like dock quite happily and can even manage the odd young bramble (> 1 year old).
