The Mailander "Green Dragon' whetstones have arrived and have replaced the old Bregenzer whetstones. Same grain as the Bregenzer at 300 grit but larger and with a better finish.


The Scythe is Back...


   This tool of the past is fast becoming the tool of the future.

  All over the Western World people are turning away from the 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 Schroeckenfux factory in Austria have been making scythes since 1540. That's 477 years. 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 you 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 bringing in the hay.

   Snaths (handles) made of Swiss ash wood are available in three sizes, also sharpening stones and all the blade maintenance gear you need to keep you 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.
