It must have taken some kind of upper-body strength to wield that fourfinger cradle model for the duration of a work shift. One ponders it in awe.
I wonder how many acres per day a guy could cut with one of those awful things. I expect there were regular and frequent breaks to keep the tool sharp. Me, I'd rather listen to the chatter of a sickle mower. :-)
