All my blades are sold Mähfertig (unless requested otherwise), i.e. peened ready to use and with a reinforced edge guard fitted.
Standard Austrian style blade, for all grass and weedy vegetation. The 60cm is a very nimble and 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 rough and stony ground.
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
A red, self gripping, metal reinforced edge guard that presses on to the edge of the blade replacing the silly plastic strip that the blades are originally supplied with.
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 people over 6’3” I do stock a limited number of size 4 snaths (£69)
Extra long snath, medium-sized right hand grip. For people over 6ft 3in
For sharpening in the field
For finishing a jig peened blade edge or stronger honing of a blunted blade

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!
Picard hammer for use with curved or flat anvils - will need polishing
Silicon carbide impregnated rubber block - essential for polishing the blade, hammer and anvil or jig prior to peening
The go to guide to learning to use an Austrian Scythe. A very useful reminder for those who have been on a course and a primer for those who haven't. easy to follow text and illustrations throughout.
A gem of a book with lots of information and fascinating insights from the man who introduced the Austrian scythe to the UK
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.
