Hedge cutter - Land Girls

As far as we understand this hedge cutter was developed during the war to be used by the Land Girls


Looks like it could be a tad on the heavy side  

It is surprisingly heavy, I'm quite used to lifting heavy weights but the thought of using that all day is something else. It's about 9ft long,with a leather harness and hand grip mid way  but the weight's still at the back and it doesn't have that long a reach.

I suppose that "in it's day" it was lightweight, I wouldn't fancy wielding it all day!
