Scythe Starter Kit

Details 

The Scythe Starter Kit consists of a blade of your choice, the snath of your choice, a natural Bregenzer whetstone, a copper stone sheath and a peening jig, or an anvil and hammer (depending on your level of skill in metal working - hammer and anvil are for experienced metal workers). If you mainly wish to mow in enclosed spaces such as around trees, garden beds and fences, the trimming blade would be most useful for you. If you wish to mow mainly wide open areas of grass, and maybe even make some hay, the field blade would be a better choice. If you have both enclosed and open areas to mow, the all-purpose blade would be a good choice. There are 4 lengths of snath to choose from. 130 cm for children or adults up to 158 cm (5 ft 2 in). 150 cm for people from 158 cm to 176 cm (5 ft 9 in). 160 cm for people from 176 cm to 188 cm (6 ft 2 in). 170 cm for people from 188 cm to 200 cm (6 ft 7 in). Please note: If you are 100% left handed. see the Scythe Starter Kit, left handed.

Scythe Starter Kit, left handed

Details 

The Scythe Starter Kit, left handed, consists of the 70 cm left handed Field blade, the snath of your choice, a natural Bregenzer whetstone, a copper stone sheath and a peening jig or an anvil and hammer (depending on your level of expertise with working metal - hammer and anvil are for experienced metal workers). We would love to be able to provide other length blades for left handed people, but we can't procure them. Very few left handed blades were ever made. However, I am left-handed, but I scythe right-handed so unless you are exclusively left-handed, I'd suggest you try our right handed scythes - the range of blades is so much greater. There are 4 lengths of snath to choose from. 130 cm for children or adults up to 158 cm (5 ft 2 in). 150 cm for people from 158 cm to 176 cm (5 ft 9 in). 160 cm for people from 176 cm to 188 cm (6 ft 2 in). 170 cm for people from 188 cm to 200 cm (6 ft 7 in).

Scythe - All Purpose

Details 

The All Purpose Scythe is a useful tool if you have both open and obstructed ground to mow, and you only wish to purchase 1 blade. This scythe consists of a snath (handle) and a Schroeckenfux 65cm all-purpose blade. There are 4 lengths of snath to choose from. 130 cm for children or adults up to 158 cm (5 ft 2 in). 150 cm for people from 158 cm to 176 cm (5 ft 9 in). 160 cm for people from 176 cm to 188 cm (6 ft 2 in). 170 cm for people from 188 cm to 200 cm (6 ft 7 in).

Scythe - Blackberry

Details 

The Blackberry Scythe, also known as the Posthorn Scythe, is our heaviest duty scythe. We needed a scythe that could be used for cutting blackberry canes and lantana. Here you have two options � the scythe blade to cut most of the blackberry canes and the hook at the back for the more stubborn ones. You can also use the hook or the blade to drag the canes out of the thicket, once cut. Due to the heavy work this blade is capable of doing, we recommend that it is only used with the aluminium snath as we don�t believe the wooden snath will take the beating over the long haul. This scythe consists of the blackberry blade, the hook and the aluminium snath.

Scythe - Bush
 
The Bush Scythe is primarily for mowing down your more robust weeds. The blade is thick and heavy duty, 60 mm wide and 50 cm long. It is about the same gauge as a light bill hook. It is capable of cutting through most woody plants of up to 1 cm diameter and even larger if the wood isn't too hard. We have used it on fruit tree suckers, thistles, purple top and small blackberry canes. If all you want to mow is grass and soft sappy weeds, this isn't the best blade for you. Care must be taken to keep the blade sharp, since heavy use of a blunt blade on tough material could damage the snath. This scythe consists of a snath (handle) and a Schroeckenfux 50cm bush blade. There are 4 lengths of snath to choose from. 130 cm for children or adults up to 158 cm (5 ft 2 in). 150 cm for people from 158 cm to 176 cm (5 ft 9 in). 160 cm for people from 176 cm to 188 cm (6 ft 2 in). 170 cm for people from 188 cm to 200 cm (6 ft 7 in).

Scythe - Field

Details 

The Field Scythe consists of a snath (handle) and a Schroeckenfux 75cm field blade. The Field Scythe is our preferred scythe for mowing open areas of grass and the softer weeds. This scythe consists of a snath (handle) and a Schroeckenfux 75cm all-purpose blade. There are 4 lengths of snath to choose from. 130 cm for children or adults up to 158 cm (5 ft 2 in). 150 cm for people from 158 cm to 176 cm (5 ft 9 in). 160 cm for people from 176 cm to 188 cm (6 ft 2 in). 170 cm for people from 188 cm to 200 cm (6 ft 7 in).

Details 

The Hay Making Scythe is for serious mowing when you have large areas of grass or wheat to harvest. This scythe consists of a snath (handle) and a Schroeckenfux 90cm field blade. With a blade 90 cm long, this scythe is reminiscent of the days when men used to mow all day in teams to bring the harvest in with the women and boys collecting and tying off the sheaths of grain. Because of the sheer weight of grass that is cut and transported in one sweep, this scythe is heavier to use than our other scythes. For the not so strong, you'd have to give yourself time for your muscles to develop. Also, if you are into competition mowing, this is the blade for you. It'll give you an edge over mowers with shorter blades. Competition mowing hasn't taken off in Australia yet, but it features quite prominently at scythe events in Europe. The Hay Making Scythe consists of a snath (handle) and a Schroeckenfux 90 cm hay making blade. There are 4 lengths of snath to choose from. 130 cm for c...
