Scythe Drawings
While the mowing machine was gaining favor by 1866, the scythe was still an important part of the farm tool aresenal. Shown here are the various styles of the period, including from top to bottom grass, lawn, grain and three styles of bramble or bush scythes. With the scythe, the farmer needed a grindstone for regrinding, plus a whetstone carried in the pocket, to maintain a razor sharp edge.
