I'm using a scythe, unfortunately without a grain cradle, so far but I will be getting a snathe that I can attach one to for my further experiments. I have to say, I like this one a lot.
And I'll try making this one, this afternoon. Only I won't cut quite the same fine figure as the UK Scythe Champion (They have a title for that, really) in the video. I'll look more like the old guy in the first one. Or what this guy must have looked like before he learned to do it.
