Default thatching blade for lawn mower

Has anyone heard of a thatching blade to put on a lawn mower? Are they easy
to use? Are they even worth getting? Are they useful for ripping out dead
moss? I know I ask alot about moss, but here in NW Washington, that's my
main concern. Fast, quick, and easy moss removal. Any help is appreciated.

There are such blades for rotary mowers. My experience is that
they do remove the thatch, but in the process, they beat the
remaining grass to a pulp. This then demands careful raking while
it "heals" to keep the grass from matting down and composting
itself. If you do use one of these blades, run the mower at the
slowest RPM possible, and never stop moving without lifting the
blade from the ground.

Try Moss Out - sold at hardware stores in WA state.
