Per the discussion of milking equines, I think the success of the Mongol hordes speaks to the viability of this practice. They each had several remounts, most of which were mares, that also served as provisions for the warrior, by converting the grass to milk, and blood. While their deeds may be reprehensible, some wisdom can be rescued from the methods they employed to accomplish them.
That sounds like a glue issue, not a scythe supply issue. I used a good waterproof glue and had no problems even when i bent the blade.

I found when I got my scythe last year, that it didn't take long to understand why scythers often refer to themselves as Scythe enthusiasts. It is a magical wonderful tool.

I do put it to some pretty heavy work - mainly keeping blackberry thickets under control but I find it annoying that they tend to blame the customer for the hand hold problem. I prefer the aluminum snath. It's adjustable and just more comfortable for me.



When you say popping out, do you mean from your hands or that the handle actually pops off of the snath?
