This snath appears and feels very durable, and I'm confident it will hold up to anything short of being run over by a truck. I put the blade end in a vise and tried to bend it to adjust the blade angle a bit, but it wouldn't move with most of my 250lb bodyweight applied to the end of the handle. I ended up bending the blade tang to adjust the angle instead.

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.

A light, yet highly durable product. Old timers would never believe a quality product like this. Much better than the old scythe handles we used to rely on. The curvature is perfect for efficient cutting. At age 76 I could work all day with this scythe. Brush cutting blade from Austria bought from another supplier, but snapped right into place and is so tight. Am cutting an acre of heavy brush and weeds.
Highly recommend this quality product.

This scythe fits perfectly on with the Seymour scythe blades you can buy on Amazon for about 40 bucks. (http://www.amazon.com/Seymour-2B-42G30-Grass-Scythe-Blade/dp/B000H5RYR0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1423844247&sr=8-1&keywords=scythe+blade) I've used this scythe, fitted with a bush blade and a grass blade, depending on what I'm cutting, for two years now and think it's great. Here are 5 things to consider when buying this scythe:

1. You need a sharpener. I use this one, and it's great: http://www.amazon.com/Ali-Ind-6055-Scythe-Stone/dp/B000BQNXQ6/ref=pd_bxgy_lg_img_y Now, this has nothing to do with the blade quality itself. Working a scythe simply means taking a break once in a while to run your stone over the blade. Sharpening is easy, and you'll appreciate the break!
2. Working a scythe is hard work. I've found that an hour a day is more than I can do, so keeping track of a couple of acres means scything a few times a week.
3. Note that the blade really matters, meaning that a bush blade is a good all-purpose blade and a grass blade is much better for grass. You'll find the grass blade makes much quicker work of hay and wheat and grasses.
4. A note of caution: if you're using the aluminum handle, you need to stay away from power lines and extension cords. Traditional scythes have wood handles, keeping you safe. The aluminum scythe can be a deadly conductor.
5. When installing the blade, you should have a couple of options in terms of the cutting angle. Play around with what works for you, as the ergonomics of scything are pretty personal.

This Scythe, brush blade, and sharpening stone can easily cut Scottish Broom +3/4" diameter. Make sure you sharpen the blade when you get it, that way the edge is easily maintained when you do have to resharpen it. The cuts are very clean, if this can make short work with Scottish Broom blackberries don't have a chance. Small sapplings are also easily cut. That said, consider where your using this. This doesn't work so well with tight areas, and also Aluminum conducts electricity very well. I'm very happy with this product, it's easier for me to use this than using a weedeater with a brush blade.

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.

I attempted to contact the manufacturer of this product prior to purchase to find out its user height range. They didn't reply. I'm 6'5", which tends to be out of the range for most sized products' default builds. But, I figured, since the handles were adjustable, and the price was reasonable, why not give it a shot?
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.
