The blade mounting area and bolt are steel, and the design transfers forces into the aluminum handle without fatigue or stress-concentration problems. There are three holes for the tang end to allow some variety in blade mounting angle.
Contrary to a couple of the negative reviews, the handles ARE adjustable. The nut and threaded rod on the end of each handle are ground flush with the wood, and won't allow the nut to be turned independently, but the entire handle can be turned to loosten the nut. They were installed very tightly and without grease on mine, and I had to use a pair of channel locks to get them started. At first I tried to turn the handles counterclockwise to loosten, and then noted after some really hard effort that the flush-ground nut was offset in the tighter direction from the end of the rod... THE HANDLES ARE INSTALLED WITH REVERSE THREADS. Not sure why it is built this way, but after I figured it out, it was an easy process to loosten the handles (clockwise), adjust the snath to fit me, and tighten the handles (counterclockwise).
I used the Seymour 2B-42W24 Weed Scythe Blade with this snath. It seems like this snath/blade combination would best fit someone between 5'-6" and 6'-0" in height. Wedges could be used to adjust the blade angle for someone shorter, but I am 6'-5" tall and had to bend the blade's tang to get the angles to work properly. After I got it adjusted to fit properly and had a couple of hours of practice under my belt, I was thrilled with the way this tool performed.
Highly recommend this quality product.
I downgraded the ratings because after a couple days (couple hours here, 1/2 hour there) of use the aluminum handle snapped in half right there by the blade. Luckily I have access to a welding machine and had the thing back in business within a couple hours. To be fair I was cutting thick Scottish Broom with it, however it should last longer than a few hours work. I would imagine a sleeve over that region to beef up the aluminum pipe would be enough to make it a little more durable.
The handles are VERY hard to adjust without damaging the soft wood grips. Even using a towel to wrap around the handle while using a vice-grip to provide enough mechanical advantage to twist the handles creates some crush damage to the grips. So much for returning the product undamaged. After reading other reviews and observing the product first hand it looks like the manufacturer grinds away the end of the bolt that they used to factory tighten the grips to make their ends round. So, they might as well not be considered adjustable since there isn't a proper way to loosen and tighten them anymore. Even after I fixed the now slightly chewed handles into place at their tallest setting, I had to stoop down slightly over half a foot to get any decent reach for proper usage. Even my father who is slightly under 6' had to stoop a couple inches to get an effective cut.
The construction of the aluminum snath, however, is very sturdy and doesn't wobble in the least bit while using it. The connector for the blade is sturdy and doesn't wobble either.
Seymour has built a proper product for people under 5'6". But, to play it safe, if you're over 5'6", find a longer snath. This one is much too short.
