The Advanced Scythe Kit with extra long snath consists of a grass blade of your choice, the 170 cm snath, a copper stone sheath, the Bregenzer whetstone, the Picard scythe anvil and Picard peening hammer.
The extra long snath (170 cm) is suitable for people between 188 cm (6 ft 2 in) and 200 cm (6 ft 7 in).
This kit is well suited to someone who is experienced working with metal and feels confident they could peen a blade freehanded.
If you mainly wish to mow in enclosed spaces such as around trees, garden beds and fences, the trimming blade would be most useful for you. If you wish to mow mainly wide open areas of grass, and maybe even make some hay, the field blade (75 cm) or even the hay making blade (90 cm) would be a better choice. If you have both enclosed and open areas to mow, the all-purpose blade would be a good choice. The vegie garden blade is for mowing in narrower rows in your vegetable garden. We’ve even seen people mowing salad vegetables with this blade when harvesting salad vegetables for market.
Please note: If you don’t feel confident to tackle freehanded peening at this stage, the Starter Scythe Kit provides you with an easier way of sharpening your blade. If you are 100% left handed. see the Starter Scythe Kit, left handed or Advanced Scythe Kit, left handed.
