Scythe are curved knives for cutting vegetation.


  • no noise pollution (or any kind of pollution)
  • produces hay for use as animal feed/bedding, mulch, eco-construction, insulation
  • only need to scythe a field or yard 2-5 times per year

Bottom Line for Scythe success[edit]

  • adjust the snath to fit your body type (same as for a bicycle)
  • find your "groove" (a repetitive trance-like wide movement that feels effortless like being in the zone when jogging) poem video
  • keep the blade sharp (peening) and honing)
  • the grass is significantly easier to cut around sunrise and sunset
