Which scythe kit to choose from this group depends firstly on whether you want a starter kit or an advanced kit, and secondly on which length of snath (scythe handle) you need.
If you are new to sharpening tools and don’t feel confident that you could peen the blade freehand, we recommend you go for the starter kit. If you have had previous experience working with metal and are the sort of person who pays great attention to detail, you would probably be more satisfied with the results obtained from the advanced kit. The freehand anvil is harder to learn to use than the peening jig, but does allow you to achieve a better edge.
Which size snath to choose: • If you are shorter than about 160 cm (5 ft 3 in), choose the Short snath • If you are between 158 cm to 176 cm (5 ft 9 in) tall, choose the Standard snath • If you are between 176 cm and 188 cm (6 ft 2 in) tall, choose the Long snath • If you are between 188 cm to 200 cm (6 ft 7 in) tall, choose the Extra Long snath
