I never had one of those type, but Dad had a big scythe that I was never to even go near...hehe...Remember the old "weed slingers"? Good old fashioned American steel with a wooden handle. I got one probably a decade ago at a yard sale. The wood was splintered, and too short for me with my back problems.
I fixed that. My idea made it lighter, taller, and more ergonomic, making it easier to use. Still I only use it when the weeds get tall, and there is not enough to bother getting out the mower or weedeater.
