Proto-Slavic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Indo-European *kes- (to comb, scratch). According to some, the second sense "scythe" is etymologically identical with the first one, while others derive it from Proto-Indo-European *ḱos-, o-grade of ḱes- (to cut), with depalatalization *ḱ*k.

Baltic cognates include Lithuanian kasa (braid) and Old Prussian kexti (braided hair).
