Please note; Starter kits no longer contain plastic whetstone sheath as they are out of stock. Prices have been reduced accordingly.
These Starter kits feature the Picard Anvil and Hammer as the peening tool.
They come with the Ash-wood snath (handle), a scythe blade, a whetsone, a plastic whetstone sheath and the Picard anvil and hammer. Everything you need to get you mowing, sharpening, and maintaining a fine edge on the blade.
The Picard Freehand Anvil is the tool for those who have a little more experience at peening than the peening jig users. Unlike the jig, this anvil requires a little more skill to learn but gives the user more manipulation of bevel angle and allows for the mending of damage. This anvil MUST be used with the Picard hammer, or a similar polished-faced peening hammer. Someone with a modicum of engineering experience can teach themself how to use this anvil if they are aware of what they set out to achieve. If you are unsure if you can learn without a tutor you may want to go with the peening jig starter kit.
