Hukhen (Grain separator)

Hukhen (grain separator) is made of bamboo and it is used in the post-harvesting operation. The wheat and other grains, after drying are threshed with the help of oxen, and the farmers after threshing with the help of hukhen shake the wheat or other grains materials forcibly so that the threshed materials and the grains are separated. It is operated by both males and females and it helps in separating the threshed materials and grains making the winnowing operation easier. Farmers can use this tool easily by standing straight and not bending and it is about 240 cm in length and 3 cm in breadth.
