Blades shipment expected September 2021:
Due to worldwide demand for scythes and global supply chain issues, Scythe Supply’s blade supply is low. We are expecting our blades shipment to arrive from Austria in early September, just in time for fall mowing!
We still have a lot to offer: a few styles of blades, replacement parts, replacement snaths, sharpening equipment and educational materials. We will regularly update our Outfits page and Order Form so you know what’s in stock.
Thank you for your orders and your loyalty. It's thanks to our dedicated customers that we have been able to keep our doors open during these challenging times. With your patronage we will continue to keep this timeless tool in the field!
Scythe Supply offers European style scythes, scythe blades, snaths, whetstones, hammers, anvils and equipment.
We are scythe enthusiasts and want others to discover the rewards of using this elegant tool.
Light, sharp and effective this scythe will mow, clear and harvest with ease — while you stand comfortably upright.
Our goal is to provide the tools and the supporting information to help you enjoy this healthy mowing alternative.
