English term or phrase: razor grass
Nie jestem pewna, ale wydaje mi się, że nie ma na ten gatunek żadnej polskiej nazwy - udało mi się ustalić, że łacińska nazwa to scleria scindens. Zastanawiam się, jakby to zgrabnie określić po polsku:

We hit a field thick with razor grass. A paper cut doesn't compare to the wounds you get from razor grass; it is like paper that has been dipped in glue and then finely crushed glass.

trawa o źdźbłach z ostrymi jak brzytwa ząbkami


Explanation:
Za pierwszym przetłumaczyłbym to opisowo i dodałbym nazwę łacińską w nawiasie - potem można używać tylko nazwy łacińskiej lub skrótu "ostra jak brzytwa trawa".

Można ewentualnie dać turzyca zamiast trawa - ale skoro to opis, to nie musi być aż tak ścisły botanicznie.
