Is a sickle a scythe?

Asked by Colton Zimmerman

What is the difference between a sickle and a scythe? A sickle has an almost circular blade and a short handle—it’s designed to be held with one hand. A scythe has a long, slightly curved blade that’s attached to a long pole, often with two handles attached—it’s designed to be held with two hands.
