The Advanced Scythe Kit consists of the 70 cm grass blade, the snath of your choice, a copper stone sheath, the Mailander Gruene Drache whetstone, the Picard scythe anvil and Picard peening hammer.
This kit is well suited to someone who is experienced working with metal and feels confident they could peen a blade freehanded.
There is only one length of blades that are left handed. We therefore recommend that if you feel you could manage a right handed scythe, which by the way is still used with two hands, you would be better to choose a right handed one. You have a much broader selection of blade lengths for right handed scythes.
- 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
Please note: If you don’t feel confident to tackle freehanded peening at this stage, the Starter Scythe Kit, left handed provides you with an easier way of sharpening your blade. If you feel you would prefer to get a right handed kit, see the Starter Scythe Kit or Advanced Scythe Kit.
