Details

Venture north of Seattle and pick up a scythe! Learn the sharper points of this elegant tool. Scythes are thought to be old school, but better blades and better ergonomics makes them one of the most efficient tools out there. Get your exercise and cut the grass at the same time. Learn what makes a good scythe, what to look for in picking a mowing outfit for your needs, and how to properly maintain and use it for years to come.

If you already use a scythe, bring it and get expert coaching to increase your skills at sharpening or to refine your scything technique. The Workshop will be geared towards what the participants are interested in learning about scythes and for experienced scythers who want to increase their skills.

Here is a bit of what the scythe can do for you! This was shot a number of years ago by Paul Wheaton of Permies.com
