A:  Thank you for contacting Fiskars. The 13 in. Clearing Hook is more suited for cutting grass and other fibrous plants. The 18 in. Billhook/Machete combo is better suited for cutting branches.

    Q:Would this cut cattails below the water line?

    Answer This Question

    A:  This should cut the cattails below water. I have been assured that it can hold its breath for a long time :) The only issue would be that the blade does not hold its edge as long as I would like. So you may need to sharpen it more often depending on how much you need to cut. We love this tool and use it cutting vines, small branches, and weeds. Thanks.

      A:  Yes it will.

      by|Apr 13, 2022

      A:  Good tool for that.  Have used in heavy grass and wet drainage area.  Length will limit you to as far as you can reach into pond area.  But if cutting on surface or within arms length should be good tool.

      by|Mar 7, 2022

        A:  Yes. Just hold the top of the weeds using one hand and cut using the other hand

        Answer This Question

        A:  Thank you for your inquiry. The Billhook is used for clearing long grass and and weeds from a path. With what you need to accomplish we suggest an edger such as our hand edger which is made specifically for clearing grass and weeds from small cracks. https://www.fiskars.com/en-us/gardening-and-yard-care/products/cultivating-tools/xact-hand-edger-315550-1001

        by|Oct 5, 2020

          A:  The blade will likely to be too thick to get into the cracks. I advice white vinegar on the cracks: that will kill the grass and the roots

          by|Jun 10, 2021

            A:  The hook is quite sturdy, i.e. thick. My guess is that this will make the cracks bigger.

            by|Apr 10, 2021

            A:  The blade is pretty thick. I don't think it will work.

            A:  I do not think so.

            by|Jul 4, 2022

              A:  No, it is not recommended to be used as a block paving knife.

              by|Sep 9, 2019

                A:  Thank you for contacting Fiskars. This product is ideal for trimming shoots and stems, dividing plants, and edging borders. We do not typically recommend using it as a block paving knife, since repeated contact with concrete or gravel can damage the blade.

                  Fiskars STEEL BLADE COMPACT CLEARING HOOK
                  Fiskars STEEL BLADE COMPACT CLEARING HOOK is a must have tool for the gardeners. I have used it for a few days and it works great when dividing plants. Cutting branches and also taking out the grass from around the beds. Handle is ergonomic and fits well in your hand. The hook fits well inside the case that it came with but it is little hard to close the cover button completely, not a deal breaker considering the ease and convenience of the tool. I love it.

                  Very handy garden tool
                  Another great yard tool from Fiskars. One thing I was surprised about is that out of the package the tool did not seem sharp. However, it cuts through flowers and weeds easily. My girlfriend had been using a big old knife and a machete to clear her flowers and she likes this much better. The tool feels like high quality in your hands. The grip is really nice. It comes with a sheath, but I doubt you will use for anything other than storing the tool, since the shape of the knife makes it really difficult to put in the sheath. I like the serrated edge on the back. It cuts nice without putting your self at risk by accidentally smacking yourself with a backward cut.

                  Compact Machete
                  This billhook really surprised me with how well it chops small brush. While still not as efficient as a machete, it does well for its size and makes a good backpack item for hiking or camping. It is not very sharp out of the box so I put an edge on it and chopped several small trees and brush with it. The downside to this compared to a machete is the close-quarters required to cut things as you must be right on top of what you are cutting. I am not sure what the serrated back-side can be used for; it doesn't saw at all and is not sharp enough to chop. Overall, this is a convenient, compact brush cutting tool.

                  Multi Use.
                  This is a great multi use compact billhook for working around the house and garden it has the billhook on one side and a wood saw/machete on the other. Fiskars uses their standard rubber plastic grip like all their other tools and I have yet to have one break on me.It comes with a cordura nylon holster to protect it when not in use.The blade is sharp and cuts well and is easy to sharpen. This is another Fiskars tool that will last for years to come.

                  UNIQUE TOOL FOR MULTIPLE TASKS
                  FISKARS brand products are high quality gardening and outdoor products and this compact billhook was designed with the same detail from its fit and finish to the materials used in making it. The curved blade serves multiple uses from edging borders of flower beds, etc. to the removal of small stems and branches. The saw back works great for trimming shoots, small branches and thorn bushes. A nicely designed handle similar to one found on some machetes make this billhook easy and comfortable to use.This tool is easier and safer to use than a typical machete for some tasks like removing newly formed tree stems covering signs at my local gun club and I also removed overgrown weeds, berry plants around archery targets set up in wooded area.

                  Well-made tool
                  This is a well-made tool for hacking down weeds you don’t want. It has a sharp edge on the front and a saw blade for cutting off branches on the back. It has a nice sheath that it goes in which you can wear on your belt. It has a plastic molded handle that is attached well to the blade. It looks and feels really solid. The handle also has a hole though it so you can hang it up which is always a plus. The only big problem with it is that spring is over 5 months away here so I won’t get to really use it for a while. I know a great bike trail along the river near here that gets over grown in summer. This will be a handy tool to keep some of the weeds back.
