Kazu Flax Cutter
lax, cabbage trees, yuccas and kikuyu grass make regular appearances in Kiwi backyards. And while for the most part they look lovely and/or are suitable to the harsh coastal climate conditions in NZ, they are quite tough and can be difficult to maintain.
Super lightweight and made from top-quality Japanese High Carbon Steel (most other flax cutters in the market place are stainless steel), the Maruyoshi blade is tempered to give long lasting durability and features a special 'back bar' designed to add even more strength to the blade.
And while it looks very versatile and the teeth are razor sharp, it's important to note that the Flax knife is not a wood saw and should never be used in a sawing or hacking motion on wood or any other hardened plant material. The serrated blade works by pulling the blade towards you and is designed to be used only on fibrous plants. When used correctly the flax cutter blade should not bend, break or snap.
