Description
Large wooden curved scythe blade. The metal blade is curved and tapered narrower at the end. The long, narrow blade is gently curved and angled upwards at the front, where it is shaped to a sharp point. The back of the blade is flat and smoothed, with the top edge folded towards the front. The bottom of the blade has been ground to a fine edge, but several deep nicks are evident. The back end of the blade is hook-shaped, with a small protruding tip. 'MA.....' is visible at the top back of the 'hook'. The wider end of the blade is attached to a long, curved wooden pole. The pole is curved and there are two separate wooden handle grips attached to the pole via metal fasteners.
History Of Use
Scythe used for cutting grass on the farm by hand. The earlier forms of scythes were from England and were without 'nibs' (hand grips). The handles were called 'snaths' and the nibs were made of hickory. This scythe was probably made after the late 1800's. This scythe was used on the Bayson farm on Newens Road. Fred Bayson's uncle had been farming in the late 1800's and Fred took over the farm in 1924 and farmed until 1979.
