This Synthetic Training Sickle is a modern replica of a historical weapon, embodying the transformation of agricultural tools into weapons of war. It is important to note that these "peasant weapons", such as the sickle, scythe, peasant stick, and flail, were adopted by peasants when called to fight, transforming them into instruments of defense and attack. This practice was widespread enough to be included in combat treatises, like those of Paulus Hector Mair.
The sickle, an ancestral agricultural tool designed for harvesting crops, is known for its small size, ease of transport, and sharp blade. These features made it a common weapon among peasant armies. Our replica, inspired by these tools turned into weapons, offers a unique historical perspective in the practice of HEMA.
The handle allows for a comfortable grip and can be used with or without gloves, also thanks to its wide pommel which prevents loss of control. Weighing only 200g, it offers exceptional maneuverability.
This product is an ideal choice for those wishing to experience an authentic and often overlooked aspect of European historical martial arts.
