Collapsible Sickle / Product design/Industry

Collapsible Sickle
Collapsible Sickle

Although modern agriculture has already been in the time of mechanized operation, mountainous areas are always ignored. Mechanized operation is impossible to get to these areas in order that the peasants of the mountainous areas still use sickle to harvest the crop.The reason which I design the collapsible sickle is that the peasants always hurt themselves or other people in the process of using sickle. If they use collapsible sickle, they can fold the sickle so that they won’t get hurt. In the aspect of ergonomic, I adopt the design of crooked handle. This design can let wrist and arms feel more comfortable when they use the sickle.
