Designed for removing those odd
annoying thistles that appear when you don't have a grubber. With
the addition of this stainless steel cutter to the heel of the
boot, the thistle can be cut off cleanly at ground level. The
boot is swung much the same way as you would swing a grubber.
Also helps with the removal of
boots. Hook the cutter under a step or onto a piece of wood and
pull your foot out of the boots.

The thistle cutter should be fitted to the boots which is most
natural to use for grubbing thistles. However one can be fitted
to each boots to assist with boot removal.
1. Select boots to fit cutter to.
Read following instructions and ensure heel of boot is large enough
to mount the cutter on before cutting the heel.
Hollow heels may not be suitable
2. Hold boot upside down in vice
or similar. Place cutter "squarely" across heel so that
it spans full width without protruding. Draw a line across heel.
3. Draw lines down both sides of
heel from existing line 16 millimeters. Join these lines together
around the back of the heel keeping the line parallel with the
seam in the boot. If this line cuts through the seam or comes
too close to it, the boot maybe not be suitable for this purpose.
Using a hacksaw or sharp knife, cut away the heel up the drawn
4.Position the cutter in place
and ensure it fits snuggly. Remove more heel if required. Use
a 3/32" (2.5mm) drill, drill two pilot holes into the heel
using the holes in the cutter as a guide. Drill approx 1"
5. Apply instant adhesive (elephant
glue) to the vertical cut face of the heel (don't get it on your
hands!) Position the cutter and screw it in place with the two
screws supplied. A cordless screwdriver is recommended for this.
The cutter may need
sharpening occasionally. Sharpen sufficiently but not too sharp.
This is dangerous and the cutting edge would also be easily damaged
on stones etc.
