what our customers are saying:

an expert bee keepers opinion

"i was very much pleased with the scythe as i ordered it myself believing that the principle was right from the illustration. i used it around my home, around the shrubbery and our boys used it somewhat in our bee yard. the tool is very light, the blade keeps sharp easily, and the sharp point at the end enables the user to get very close to objects like shrubbery or beehives and thus cuts practically all the grass and weeds. it is far superior to the ordinary scythe, and you have my permission to use this letter in any way you see fit."

most satisfying

"the marugg grass scythe proves itself an excellent tool. it is the most satisfying hand tool that i have ever used. in tough grass it cuts a little less uniformly than the power scythe. in all other ways, in my opinion, it is a better tool because, it is light, it handles gracefully & comfortably even on steep ground, it is far less dangerous, it is quiet & makes no fumes, it is much more adaptable. in rank growth one narrows the cut & shortens the stroke. it always starts - provided the user will start. aside from reasonable skill & care in use, there are no maintenance problems. it requires no fuel or oil. it runs on breakfast. it’s cheaper to buy than most weed eaters & is cheaper to use than any other power mower. and best of all it’s good exercise."

hammered edge superior

"i have never seen anything to equal the marugg special scythe, the way it cuts. i would have to grind an ordinary blade at least 10 times to do what i have done with this one on it’s first hammering, and it still cuts good. i have tried it in the toughest kind of cutting, and when handled right , it will stand as much abuse as any blade i have ever tried."

orders from onlookers

" i received grass blades, attachments and hoe all ok, and while people watched me in the city while i was mowing, they just wondered how i could do it, mow the grass as close as a lawnmower. j. d. bolster and silas wentz, who were watching me, gave me their order which you will find enclosed."

forest rangers praise bush blades

"we gave your bush blades an actual on fire trial and found it superior to all other tools on the chief's fire truck. our chief has made an inspection trip to los angeles and advised fire chiefs in that district to equip their trucks with a marugg bush blade."

workmen fight over these scythes

"i carried my outfit to my orange grove, where i have two men mowing, both tried it out and stated that it is the finest scythe they had ever used. when i left they were about to fight to see which one would use it. please enter my order for another, rush shipment."
