I was in the market for a Scythe until I realized outfits cost $300.
Usually it’s 100 for blade, 100 for snath, 50 for peening jig, and 50 for shipping. (I’m in California.) I’ve gotten quotes from all the popular vendors listed here. I was shocked a hand tool was this pricey!
I have a 1/2 acre hilly plot with weeds that have gone to seed for at least two seasons.
Can anyone recommend a solution for 100 bucks or less that will be permaculture friendly (not muck up the soil or spew gas)?
I would love to use a Scythe but it’s too much.
