All my blades are sold Mähfertig, i.e. peened ready to use
Standard Austrian style blade, for grass and light weeds. The 60cm is a very versatile blade, the 75cm is more suited to meadow mowing.
Hook-nosed blade, with hardened stone-deflecting tip, for tough grass and weedy vegetation; ideal for hedgerows, fence lines, in between fruit bushes etc.
Elegant, hook-nosed, grass blade; for meadows and lawns. The best blade for a smooth lawn finish and for soft grasses but not really suitable for uneven ground
Adjustable wooden snaths are designed by Peter Vido and technicians at Schroeckenfux. They have a lightly curved ash shaft (the curve deviates 2 inches from a straight line). Both the right and left hand grips can move along the shaft. The method of fixing the grips to the snath, which involves a single bolt, is ingenious, secure and not at all cumbersome. The snaths are light, quite slim, but with sufficient meat at the bottom to trim the end to adjust the angle of a blade if necessary
Kid's snath, short right hand grip. For people up to approximately 4 foot 8 inches
or with medium right hand grip. For people from 4 foot 8 up to 5 foot
Short snath, medium-sized right hand grip. For people from 4 foot 11 in up to 5ft 10 in.
Long snath, medium-sized right hand grip. For people from 5ft 10 in up to about 6 ft 3in. It can be set for people of 5 ft 7in to 5ft 9 in but a size 2 will be more nimble
For sharpening in the field
For finishing a jig peened blade edge or stronger honing of a blunted blade
The Mailander is a hard, natural, fine grit stone
The Saurat is a softer slate, fine grit stone
To carry the stone on the belt
A copper version of the galvanised stone carrying sheath
Flat or round - for repairs of blade damage
Peening is the process of forging a thin bevelled edge on the blade
A simple curved anvil
A curved anvil with a removable adjustable table attachment to steady and guide the blade
Takes the high skill requirement out of peening - idiot proof!
Polished for use with curved or flat anvils
Silicon carbide impregnated rubber block - essential for polishing the blade, hammer and anvil or jig prior to peening
I now offer a blade peening and edge repair service. If you have damaged the edge of your blade or simply don't fancy the idea of doing your own peening I can return your blade to "mähfertig" condition for you. Alternatively you can trade it in for a new blade.
