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.Read more ›
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.
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.
