Well, the blades of that grass are always a bit sharp but the attack came when I foolishly tried to divide the plant so I could have more of them. Sharper and stronger implements availed me nothing until I was shaking with exhaustion and the plant was still in one piece. And it wrapped a swatch of those handsome blades around the handle of Danny's chainsaw and I could tell by the look in its eye it was planning to do me dirty. I bailed out LOL
