Scythes NZ

* Shop Closing: I will be away from home from 13th February through until 22nd February inclusive. During this time you can contact me with enquiries by email and place orders but nothing will be sent until 22 February.

* Scything on Facebook. Check out the new Facebook page "Scything New Zealand" set up by Ian Andrews of Masterton. A chance for us to all come together and swap advice and scything stories and hopefully get to know scythers in our own area so we can get together to mow and learn from each other.

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 and 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 two sizes, also sharpening stones and all the blade maintenance gear you need to keep you mowing.

Please don't hesitate to contact me with your questions . . .
