our curved (steamed and bent) hickory snath is made to the same pattern we've been using for over 130 years. it is more traditional than our straight snath, and well suited to all but the shortest of reapers. it is 60 inches long. (if you are under 5' tall, consider the straight snath.) few people are the exact size to fit our standard snath. custom sizing is free, so please take advantage of it to ensure you get the proper length and angle for comfortable mowing.
the handles face you when you are swinging it. a nib sets the lower handle in the proper postion so that your arms can hang loose. a mounting ring and wrench designed to hold our blades securely is included. extra wrenches and screws are not available.
a light coating of linseed oil should be applied occasionally.
