    Great book for learning how to use a scythe I just bought a scythe, so I wanted to read something about it before I began using it I guess the best thing is to simply go out in the yard and start swinging

    This book is awesome Even if you don t own a scythe, the history in here would be fun to read If you dislike weed eaters and the smell of 2 stroke engines, you should read this just to get an intro into how nice it might be to leave that all behindit s fun I swear

    Very useful details on how to select, adjust, sharpen, and use a scythe I liked the historical anecdotes and information, like the origin of the phrase needle in a haystack I never knew that Now I want to get my hands on a good scythe and have at it

    I have only cut myself once
