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.
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.
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.
A: Yes. Just hold the top of the weeds using one hand and cut using the other hand
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
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
A: The hook is quite sturdy, i.e. thick. My guess is that this will make the cracks bigger.
A: The blade is pretty thick. I don't think it will work.
A: I do not think so.
A: No, it is not recommended to be used as a block paving knife.
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.
