Learn to Scythe is a practical manual taking you step by step through all the skills to use and maintain an Austrian scythe for cutting grass and other vegetation to manage your land.

While the best way to learn to scythe is to attend a scythe courses where you can be shown how to set up the scythe and mow in person, I realise that this isn’t always possible. Based on my popular Learn to Scythe courses and over 10 years experience of scything and teaching, this book will give you the confidence to start scything and act as a valuable reference for the future.


Introducing the scythe
Mowing words
Choice of blade
Setting up your scythe
Ergonomic mowing
Honing the edge
Peening Continental scythe blades
Organising your mowing
Scythe safety

This is a fantastic set, amazing axe and really sharp and strong carving knives. Really has improved my carving (I’d previously ordered from amazon cheaply and regretted it) Shelley was really helpful and arrived fast!

I would recommend this set to anybody interested in embarking (pardon the pun) on a new wood carving hobby. Steve has done a great job of bringing all these sturdy tools together with sheathes included. Everything arrived brand new and sharp, in both meanings of the term!
