Etymology[edit | edit source]

A scythe is an agricultural hand tool for mowing grass or reaping crops largely replaced by horse-drawn and then tractor machinery, but is still used in some areas of Europe and Asia. A war scythe is a regular scythe adapted for combat use by straightening their tangs to re-attach the blade parallel to the snath, rather than perpendicular to it, so that it looks like a bill. The Grim Reaper and the Greek Titan Cronus are often depicted carrying or wielding a scythe. Often people confuse scythes and sickles. They are not the same. A scythe has a slowly arcing blade and can be full size or in smaller handheld versions such as seen in Japanese Kama. A sickle has a C shaped blade with the end of the blade pointing straight up from the C curve in line with the handle. The most common example of a sickle is on the Russian Flag.
