WEBSITE CLOSING FOR WINTER.
Friday April 5th.
I will be heading for Aus to attend Scythes Australia's "Scythes Plus" Weekend
(April 12-14th) and from there onto a busy working winter. I'll be back trading again on October 28th. In the meantime I can field enquiries via email but I can't trade.
The Scythe is back...
This tool of the past is fast becoming a tool of the future.
All over the western world people are turning away from noisy, fuel burning weedeaters and lawnmowers and taking up the scythe.
Faster than a weedeater and less cost to buy and run, the scythe is healthier for your body, your mind, and the planet.
The Schrockenfux factory in Austria have been making scythes since 1540. That's 470years. They should know by now how to make scythe blades: And they do.
Now I have them available to buy, brand new, here in New Zealand. I have everything you need to get mowing as well as on-going instruction and advice and permanent contact with the greater world of scything.
I have four types of blade from trimming blades, for around the tricky bits, to full size field blades for serious mowers who want to bring in the hay.
Snaths (Handles) made of Swiss ash are availible in two sizes, and sharpening stones and all the blade maintainence and conditioning gear you need to keep mowing.
At present I am just stocking the basics to get us all mowing. Further down the track I'll be selling other tools and running workshops to get us all together to learn from each other and have fun.
Keep watching this space!
