A Luxor 75cm blade that has had the lacquer cleaned from the edge and been given an edge peen (“Ready to Mow” finish).
It has been very lightly used, so there is slight wear on the lacquer on the back of the blade and the sticker. It is otherwise as new.
A fine blade for mowing meadows, soft weeds and lawns.
A Luxor blade hardly leaves his snath for most of the grass mowing season.
The 85cm length is hard at work in the hay meadow. He uses the 75cm Luxor for most garden work (lawns, tracks, overgrown edges) and a 50cm Luxor for paths and trimming work. The shorter versions of this blade can be found here.
Slightly heavier then the Profisense Meadow blade, it is more forgiving of coarser mowing. The body of the blade is fairly flat so it needs a little more care with initial set up to get it mowing well.
Once it is set up it mows like a dream and is a useful step up from the Profisense blade.
If used with care the 75cm blade (and shorter lengths) are capable of mowing young brambles and bracken. If you have large areas to tackle, or the brambles are more mature, one of these tougher blades might suit you better.
We now stock an 85cm Luxor scythe blade
This is the length that we favor for the majority of our hay mowing. We switch to shorter lengths late in the season when the weight or toughness of the grass makes mowing with long blades harder work.
All new blades should have the lacquer cleaned off the cutting edge to prevent it clogging the sharpening stone. For best performance when mowing grass and fleshy weeds, most blades will also benefit from being edge peened before first use.
For an extra £10, all scythe blades can be supplied prepared and edge peened. Blades are prepared to order and may take longer to dispatch at times of high demand. As with all blades, Ready to Mow blades will need honing with a stone before first use and frequently there after.
The chance to buy a “Ready to Mow” Styria 65cm or Profisense 75cm is offered to all course participants at the end of a scythe course at no extra charge.
