Historically, the scythe is one of the most interesting tools. Many idioms, coats of arms or even family names still point to the cultural value of this handicraft tool.

Unfortunately, today the scythe is often displaced by its "motorized relative" - the brushcutter. There are certainly economic aspects that speak in favor of hand mowing and nature also says thank you, especially insects, amphibians and reptiles.

The course day with Jürg von Känel from the Mammern Scythe Workshop (TG) is aimed at all interested persons who would like to learn more about working with the scythe and how to care for the tool. Practical practice is also not neglected and to ensure that a comfortable posture is taken when mowing, the practice scythes are adapted to your body size. Whether you are left-handed or right-handed is also taken into account.

In the afternoon, Jürg von Känel takes time for you if you need to readjust your own tools or even spare parts.
