We still have a couple of places left on our Introductory Scythe Course on June 23rd. An Introductory course is a great place to start using a scythe, or as a refresher if you have had one for a while. On the course we cover scythe set up, mowing, sharpening and peening with plenty of chance to have a go. We believe people learn best by doing!
We have scythes for sale at the end of each course and we strongly recommend that you attend an Introductory course before you buy your first scythe.
It gives you a chance have a go first and see what set up suits you best. Having seen a peening jig and an anvil in action and had a go yourself, you will be in a better position to decide which one will suit your needs. We will be able to advise you on which blade is best for your situation and all course participants have the chance to buy a Ready to Mow blade, that has been expertly prepared and edge-peened by Philip Batten, at no extra cost.
