the handles face you when you are swinging this scythe. 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.
this outfit comes standard with a 24" grass blade. if you are planning to mow last year's weeds and brambles, you'll want a brush blade instead. a stone holder is included (it clips on your belt or your back pocket. this outfit also includes a manmade stone. you may also want to order the natural stone separately - if you are reaping tender forage and want a 'razor edge' on the blade.
at some point, you will need to hammer out the edge of the blade. our peening jig is the best tool for the job. only one is needed per family or neighborhood.
