Grass Blade Profisense

From £46.00

A fine blade for mowing meadows, soft weeds and lawns. This blade sets up and mows easily so is ideal for learning to scythe.

If you are a more experienced scyther you might be interested in trying a Luxor grass blade.

A longer blade will allow you to move forward further with each stroke of the scythe. This will result in the mower having to move the weight of more grass across the stroke. So a compromise has to be made between speed of mowing and the weight the mower is able/willing to move.

In lighter meadow grasses and lawns a longer blade is preferable, but a shorter blade may be preferred in heavier grasses or in confined areas eg small lawns, paths.

If you are mowing large areas of lighter grasses, you may be interested in these longer meadow mowing blades.

Ready to Mow Scythe Blades

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.
