Hand Powered Tools: The Scythe, the Original Weed Whacker

An article about the new interest in a old time hand powered tool, the scythe.

The secret is to keep it sharp. A dull scythe makes for hard unpleasant work. A well sharpened blade will cut with little more effort than a powered string trimmer. The smart scythe mower will stop cutting at frequent intervals to re-hone his blade.

The handle of the scythe is called a snath. The snath usually has two grips. It is best to have the snath and grips sized to your height so that you can swing the blade from an upright position. This will save your back from undue strain.

The movement while cutting takes a little practice. If the snath is adjusted properly the back edge of the blade should be resting on the ground with the cutting edge tilted up slightly. Except for rough terrain, the blade should ride on the ground at all times. The mower swings the blade in front of him from the waist. The blade should move through the weeds at an angle so that it is slicing like a knife, not chopping like an axe.

I put together my scythe from eBay and Craigslist for under $50. I do my sharpening with a file, a stone and 100 grit sandpaper on a round block. Mine is a North American style tool, which is said not to be the best choice. The European style scythes are supposed to be much lighter and the blades are made of a softer steel which makes them easier to sharpen.

Owners of European style scythes learn to make a really sharp edge. They peen the blade first to make it very thin. Then they work that edge with a stone. The blade is said to be so sharp and thin that you can deflect it with your thumbnail.

Back in the day, my Dad would make me cut weeds with a weed whip that was never sharp enough. I had to swing it as hard as I could to do any real damage to the always encroaching flora from the nearby woods. It was at the top of my list of most hated chores of childhood.

Now I have a string trimmer and a scythe for attacking the weeds. The string trimmer is good for touching up around the house and walkways, but for the heavy growth I like the scythe.

The best time to cut tall grass is in the early morning. That is when the plant is as full of moisture as it can be. That makes it softer and easier to cut. Another good use for a scythe is in really dry brush where a motor driven cutter might start a fire.

Here's a video on YouTube of a girl who can really handle a scythe :
