they ship to all Europe at least. I dont know about the US. You can ask maybe.
The rest of the shop is worth a look too. The knives are just...
I usually support http://www.ehardwicks.com/ in Seattle, gods own hardware store... but they are just getting into e-commerce...
Is there a strong range of quality when it comes down to this tool? I typically find that unless you pitch in a pretty penny, the tools don't last as long.
This is why I have been hesitant to order one, as I do not enjoy spending money to replace a tool that can no longer be repaired.
On a complete different note, I just got my scythe today from www.scytheworks.ca!
Quite a wide range of kama, from about $5 US up to $35 US. In fact, I even saw a cheapie at the 100 yen store ($1.20!).
What are you guys using these for?
The japanese hand axes are also very nice (and expensive) for processing woodier material in a similar fashion.
You have a really great website and I love the tools you offer. Your
kama's seem to be 2-3x the prices of other offering websites. Is this
because the quality is that much better or is it for a different
reason? I am an individual on a shoe string budget, but value a high
quality tool and will pay more if the tool is honestly that much
I highly appreciate your honest answer, and thank you for your time!
And their reply was:
Thanks for your email. My kama prices are in line and some lower than some
out there on other websites... There are some that they call kama which are
straighter than run around $14-15 but that is not the same product as the
one I sell. There is also a small sickle that people are calling a kama
which is more for bonsai and runs around $8-10.... Not the same product.
I have sold these kamas for 8 years and have never raised the prices.
I appreciate your question and hope my answer was helpful.
All the best,
Since I was happy with there response, I plan to be ordering a medium kama through them. I will let you all know the quality.
Enewell - thats a Weeder and not the Rice Knife or Kama Sickle.
Quite a different tool
Brenda - Try putting a longer handle on one .
The one for weeding has heavier metal in the blade to stand the harder use. It also has a slight tilt to the blade. The rice kama is thinner and straighter.
I have both and use both of them often. I use the weeding one to clear off weeds. It cuts the roots below the surface so it works well on many grass weeds. I use the rice kama to cut greens for my rabbits.

Just wondering if anyone has any more information on where to buy a good Kama.
Also it seems there are two types of Kamas a weeding type and a chop and drop type. Is this true?
