Learn to Scythe

Learn to scythe

At last, there is a clear and concise guide to help you learn to scythe!

There has long been a need for a guide that is in harmony with the way the scythe is being used in the UK. Steve Tomlin’s new book “Learn to Scythe” is just that.

It gives instruction on every aspect of scythe use – from set up to good mowing technique, sharpening and peening to caring for your blade – with helpful illustrations throughout and clear and informative text.

Steve and Phil co-taught the scythe courses running up to the West Country Scythe Festival for many years. The courses provided an opportunity for them, along with Christiana Lagander, to develop and refine their teaching techniques which Steve has captured admirably in this book.

An in person a scythe course is the best way to learn, but this book is the next best thing.
