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 benefit from being edge peened before first use.
For an extra £10, all scythe blades can be supplied prepared and edge peened, making them ready to mow straight from the box. Blades are prepared to order and may take longer to dispatch at times of high demand.
The chance to buy a “Ready to Mow” Styria 65cm or Profisense 75cm is offered to all course participants at the end of a course at no extra charge.
