The comeback of mowing with a scythe keeps your body and the environment fit. An increasing number of hobby gardeners are enjoying that smell of freshly cut grass. Handling a scythe is a skill that requires some practice. The course starts out with peening the blade using the peening anvil, honing it on a whetstone, adjusting the snath, and it ends with mowing practices. You may bring your own scythe. It is also possible to purchase high-quality scythes and blades during the course.
    More information on the workshop instructor

    Ernst Schoiswohl

    As we all know, the best scythes are manufactured in Austria. In the town of Rossleithen in the Upper Austrian Kremstal valley the company Schröckenfux, which has a long tradition, has manufactured tailor-made scythes for 450 years. Who else could teach our participants better how to sharpen and grind scythes and sickles than the qualified foreman Ernst Schoiswohl, who has been working in the worlds most famous scythe smithy for more than 30 years?Ernst Schoiswohl
