A sickle is an off-hand weapon. A character can use a sickle to make attacks even while holding another one-handed weapon in the other hand, and can use the other one-handed weapon to make attacks even if it isn't an off-hand weapon.
Ardents, artificers, avengers, barbarians, bards, battleminds, clerics, druids, fighters, invokers, paladins, psions, rangers, runepriests, seekers, shamans, sorcerers, swordmages, vampires, wardens, warlocks, and warlords are proficient with all simple melee weapons, including the sickle. Assassins are proficient with one-handed simple melee weapons, including the sickle.
Other classes do not have proficiency with the sickle as a class trait, but any character can become proficient by taking a Weapon Proficiency feat.
