Sunday 6th April is International Peening Day. For our part, we are holding a Peening and Sharpening Workshop at the Dyfed Permaculture Farm Trust.
Perhaps your blade is not cutting as well as it used to or it has picked up a few nicks and dents? Or maybe you want to move on from the peening jig and have a go at freehand peening?
This workshop is the ideal chance to get to grips with all aspects of the art of peening and sharpening and give your blade a thorough service before the mowing season gets underway. Practice blades will be available if you feel a bit nervous about making your early attempts on your own blade!
As we have discovered over the years, knowing how to get your blade truly sharp and keep it that way can make your mowing experience much easier and more effective.
More details about this and other workshops at the Trust can be found on http://www.scythecymru.co.uk/courses/
