Blade 40 cm (Vegie Garden Blade)


At 40 cm in length, this is the smallest blade we offer. It is particularly useful for mowing undersown green manure around cultivated plants. We also use it to harvest the spinach we grow in every alternate row in the vegetable patch. Or if your weeds have got away from you, you can mow them first before hoeing - which makes hoeing much easier. We have limited stock of this blade as we are testing the market to see if there is much interest.
Price: AU$ 85.00

Blade 50 cm (Bush Blade)


This is our most robust blade. It is a thick, heavy duty blade 60 mm wide and about the same gauge as a light billhook. It is capable of cutting most woody plants up to a centimeter in diameter, or bigger, depending on the species. We don't recommend using it for grass. It is typically used to work in areas whee there are small sapllings or fruit tree suckers. Care must be taken to keep the blade sharp as heavy use of a blunt blade on tough material could damage the snath.
Price: AU$ 90.00

Blade 55cm (Trimming Blade)


The Schroeckenfux trimming blade is 55 cm long and in scything terms considered a short blade. This blade is particularly useful if mowing in a confined area as it is much easier to maneuver and is more accurate in getting close to obstacles such as tree trunks and fences. This blade is highly recommended for those who would consider the addition of a field blade later, but like to start small.
Price: AU$ 90.00

Blade 65cm (All-Purpose Blade)


This Schroeckenfux blade is a useful compromise blade, i.e. one with which you can do some trimming work and also mow larger open areas of grass. In a constricted area, you won't be able to achieve as neat a job as if you chose a shorter blade, and in large open areas, you won't be able to mow as efficiently, but if you have both jobs to do, and only want to purchase one blade, this is a good middle-of-the-road blade.
Price: AU$ 95.00

Blade 70cm (left handed blade)
This Schroeckenfux blade is one of the few left handed blades available. At 70 cm long, it is a general purpose blade. Left handed blades are rare because when it was common practice to mow in teams, it was too dangerous to have a left-handed mower in a team of right handed mower - something like being the only car driving in the wrong direction on the freeway!
Price: AU$ 100.00

Blade 75cm (Field Blade)


This Schroeckenfux blade is a serious grass-cutting tool, one which could be used to mow acres of grass for hay. If you intend to use your scythe to make hay manually, or even if you have large open areas of lawn to mow, then the field blade will allow you to cut more grass at one stroke with a deeper forward bit into the grass.
Price: AU$ 100.00

Blade 90cm (Long Field Blade)


At 90 cm, this is the longest blade we offer. It is a blade for serious grass mowing. If you intend to regularly harvest a good sized paddock of hay, this blade might be just what you are after. It is heavier to use than our other blades - not because of the blade itself, but because of the sheer weight of grass you cut and transport with one sweep. If you want to get into competition mowing, you'll be looking for a long blade like this. Competition mowing is a sport that is starting to take off in Europe.
Price: AU$ 105.00
