At 40 cm in length, this Schroeckenfux blade is the smallest grass blade we offer. It is particularly useful for mowing green manure around cultivated plants. We also use it to harvest the spinach we grow in every alternate row in the vegetable patch, or mowing along the fenceline. It is also known as the vineyard blade as it is used to mow around the grape vines.
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.
