This set comes with a Profisense blade
A fine blade for mowing meadows, soft weeds and lawns. This blade sets up and mows easily so is ideal for learning to scythe. It comes in two lengths (65cm and 75cm).
A longer blade will allow you to move forward further with each stroke of the scythe and so mow a given area more quickly. This does 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 light to medium meadow grasses and lawns a longer blade is best, but a shorter blade may be preferred in heavier grasses or in confined areas eg small lawns, paths, “garden meadows”.
Alternatively, you can choose the Falci 100 meadow blade.
The Falci 100 is easy to use and set up. It is slightly lighter then the Profisense, so less suited for rougher meadows (eg loose stones on the surface, occasional coarser vegetation such as bramble, bracken etc.) but needs less peening to maintain a fine cutting edge. The shorter lengths are ideal for “garden meadows”.
