I live at the edge of the Gettysburg National Military Park. In 2008, the National Park Service took down a large, 50 acre wooded area next to me to restore the Battlefield to its 1863 "look". They were supposed to send in brush hogs to keep regrowth down, but have not been able to do so. I have volunteered to do my best at attacking the regrowth. Bought this heavy duty "weed ", scythe blade. It is great. Can handle small trees, bramble, heavy "turkey grass", thistle etc. etc. Handles all with ease. For a 76 year old ... this is no easy task. This tool takes me back to my 20s. In fact, a much better tool than I had in the 1950s. Regular, normal duty blade would not have done as well in these conditions. Heavy enough to get the job done, but not to tire you out. Sharp enough to mow down regular, high grass. Thistle and small trees don't have a chance.Easy to attach to the snath. Good Austrian workmanship in this product.

Bought this blade with the Seymour SN-9 aluminum snath. The blade fit the snath well and was easy to install. I had to adjust the blade-to-ground angle to fit my 6'-5" height by bending the tang slightly with a pair of big pipe wrenches. For someone between 5'-6" and 6'-0" it should be just about right as it is.

As noted in another review, the blade finish and grinding is rough. This is to be expected from just about any hand tool, with the exception of saws. You should ALWAYS expect to have to rework the edge when you buy a cutting tool. Whether it's a chisel, plane, carving gouge, machete, or... scythe, it will need a little work before you can use it. It took me about 20 minutes of draw filing the bevels and another 10-15 minutes with a scythe stone to get the edge to a working condition; no big deal considering that I'll get many years of use out of the tool.

The blade steel and heat treating seems appropriate for the use: it's soft enough to work easily with a file, but hard enough to hold its shape well when in use. I didn't have any problems with the edge folding over when cutting tough material like hardwood saplings up to around 3/4" diameter and dried branches hidden in the grass. I ended up with a few chips in the edge as I found (and removed) every hidden stone in the small field and road shoulder I was mowing, but they are small and will be easliy removed with a little more filing.

After a weekend of using my scythe, I'm completely sold on the tool. It is my new go-to tool for property maintenance. I expected it to be a great tool for clearing tall grass, and it is.

I have never used a scythe before buying this blade and the aluminum snath. I need to keep the weeds down on approximately 9000 linear feet of microjet irrigation polytube in my 5 acre grove. I have tried trimmer mowers, grass trimmers, weed whips, in combination with herbicides, with marginal results. I decided to try the weed scythe.. I am amazed how well it works. I use less effort to get the job done than with the motorized devices. It slices through the thick weeds including any woody plants. No unnecessary noise, pollution, and I minimized the use of herbicides.

When I first got my Seymour scythe, I purchased it with a grass blade. That blade is absolutely amazing for grass, as it's long and thin. I quickly realized, however, that different kinds of scythe blades really do matter. This weed blade, which I now frequently use around the edges of our property, is great for ripping through thistle, light brush, and all kinds of weeds. Note that this weed blade is much shorter than the grass blade, making it better for hacking through rough weeds.

When I run this weed blade, I've found that the trick is to sharpen it pretty often -- every 15 minutes or so, I'll stop and touch it up with my scythe sharpening stone. If you think I'm suggesting this because I need to rest when I'm running my scythe, you're partly right! Working a scythe is a ton of work and a great way to break a sweat. However, you really do want to scythe with a sharp blade, as it's sooooo much easier and better. Just 10 light strokes on each side of the blade and you're back to being sharp.

Seymour scythes are truly amazing tools, and I'm planning to get many more years out of this blade. It's very easy to change out this blade, taking just 2 or 3 minutes.

I vouluteer at a animal sanruary and this was perfect for cutting tall grass which I then feed to the horse and buffalo. The blade is easy to sharpen and needed a little bending to get the right angle. It takes a little bit of practice to get it working.

First Impressions:
1. The blade is heavy.
2. It appears to be well designed.
3. The bevel on the blade is straight.

The blade comes sharp but with a pronounced burr. Yes it would be great if the blade came without a burr and the edge polished to a mirror shine. But it should be noted that this blade must be maintained by the owner. As I understand it, the blade will need to be honed about every 15 minutes while cutting. So the user must have a stone to sharpen the blade. With a sharpening stone the burr can be knocked down it about 30 seconds.

I think that it should also be noted that it is wise to have a "scythe stone" to sharpen the blade, and a waterproof stone holder that attaches to the user's belt. The stone should be maintained wet while using a scythe to function properly.

I have a Georgia Power "power cut" at the very back of my backyard. The power company allows me to fence in this land as long as I keep the weeds knocked down. Unfortunately I have not been doing a good job staying on top of the mowing back there. The grass and weeds are now 4 feet tall. The brush stalks are a good 3/4" in diameter. This blade knocked the weeds down quite quickly.

I tried a brush cutter (heavy duty hand held string weed eater) which choked on the weeds and ate up all the string in about 30 minutes. Sure I could spend $350 for a heavier duty string cutter with wheels and a more powerful motor. I could even go up to a bush hog or a $2500 metal blade brush cutter. But for the money a scythe can't be beat.

I am a happy camper.
