The Schroeckenfux trimming scythe blade is 55 cm long and in scything terms considered a short blade. This blade is particularly useful if mowing in a confined area as it is much easier to maneuver and is more accurate in getting close to obstacles such as tree trunks and fences. This blade is highly recommended for those who would consider the addition of a field blade later, but like to start small.
The Schroeckenfux grass scythe blades that we sell are well suited to the high silicon content of the Australian native grasses as well as the softer imported grasses. We have asked for a stone tip to be added to all of our grass blades so that when scything properly, i.e. in an arc with the blade slicing through the grass, if your grass is hiding a rock, a bit of wire or a star picket, you’ll hit the obstacle with the stone tip and thus better protect your blade.
