The Verdict

Review By: I.Ball

Manufacturer: Elwell

Tool Type: Grass Hook

Model No: 5283

The old Elwell grass hook number 5283 is fitted with a hardwood handle and curved blade. The blade is sharp on the inside of the curved blade.

The handle is usually secured with the use of a metal tang running from the blade right through the handle and then tied off / capped off at the end of the handle.

The blade is marked with the markings 'Elwell 5283'.

The Elwell grass hook is a traditional tool used for cutting long grass, crops and weeds by either swinging the tool or by drawing the tool into the plants. The large curve catches and cuts a good amount of plants with each swing allowing quick clearance of an area of overgrown grass / plants.

The Elwell grass hook 5283 has an offset blade which is set below the line of the handle. This feature allows the user to swipe the grass / plants nearer to the ground without fingers getting bashed.

The tool works best when the blade is sharp.

The tool is also referred to as an Elwell sickle or Elwell swap / swop hook.
