The Suwannee Sling is a hand tool designed for removing vines, weeds, overgrowth, and small branches from trails, footpaths, or similar areas.
It weighs 5 pounds, and has a fiberglass handle, with a hardened steel ax head for cutting heavier foliage and branches/roots, and a double sided bottom blade that cuts with a "golf" type swinging action. The head of the Sling is securely fastened to the handle to prevent separation of the two parts.
The Sling takes the place of several types of other hand tools, and reduces the need to carry them on the trail during any hikes, including work hikes.
The Sling doesn't make any noise itself, other than the sound of a sharp tool swinging through the air and into whatever vegetation you’re working on…, and of course whatever grunts or groans that escape from the operator!
There’s no need to carry any petrochemicals, or spare spark plugs or other parts to operate this tool, but you'll be well served to bring along a diamond sharpening tool or a high quality file, to sharpen the Sling’s edges from time to time.
The Sling is made from a high quality steel, and the cutting edges of the Sling are hardened to resist dulling, but they will need to be sharpened as needed.
The Sling is also available in a Left-Handed version. Against the advisement from my CFO, we offer the Left-handed version at no extra cost to the customer!
GREAT CARE MUST BE USED WHEN EVER THE SUWANNEE SLING IS BEING USED!! Using the Sling is NOT a spectator sport!
WE STRONGLY ADVISE AGAINST CHILDREN BEING ALLOWED TO USE THIS TOOL, OR ANYONE ELSE WHO MAY BE IMPAIRED IN ANY WAY! Use the same safety proceedures for this tool, the same as you would an axe or machete.
PROPER FOOTWEAR, LEG PROTECTION, AND EYE PROTECTION SHOULD ALWAYS BE WORN WHEN USING THIS TOOL!
Prevent striking any of the cutting edges against dirt or stone, as it will dull and possibly chip the hardened cutting edges.
Please use the Suwannee Sling wisely and safely!!!
