description
The chicory knife is used to cut the tops of the chicory in the field. It is a small (approx. 20 cm) and light (approx. 25 g) knife with a straight blade and smooth edge, which lies comfortably in the hand. The blade is often sharpened, making the edge somewhat hollow. The handle can be wood or plastic. [MOT]
