The World of the Scythe
June 18, 2017
Tillers International, Scotts, MI

Join us for one day class on the scythe. Demonstrations include hay mowing, cutting hillsides, ditches and under fences, hay management for the small farm, creating a keen cutting edge with a hammer and peening anvil and maintaining that edge by honing using a whetstone.

We’ll mow an area and show how to manage the cut grass with a simple collection of hand tools. There will be plenty of hands-on instruction and practice.
Learn to adjust the scythe to your body and correct movement for mowing. Bring your scythe to class if you have one, have it evaluated for fit and sharpness.

Scythes will be provided to try. Discussion of different scythes will also be part of the class.

Register for this class and learn more about Tillers International and the excellent classes they offer.
