I'm guessing he looked up the spelling in his Funk and Wagnells.

That's a little guy.Dads is about a foot longer but I've used the shorter ones.They work really good but by the end of the day your hands will be bleeding if ya don't wear gloves.
I was naughty on the school bus and had one of those waiting for me when I came home from detention in 3rd grade lol.Not fun at all.Needless to say I was good on the bus from then on.

Its got to have somekind of magic powers or something. Maybe it flys!
That would be cool if it cut the hay all by it's self. Imagine what it would do if it malfunctioned. Sounds like a SiFi Original movie in the making

Must be related to THIS GUY.
Oddly enough, those do have market value. Our local taxidermist uses them in some of his displays and mounts, and pays good money for perfect ones.
On the topic of the scythe, when I was kid the local "town man" used one to cut the tall grass in the ditches. I was fascinated. It was like poetry in motion, the way he swung the scythe and the grass fell in an almost continuous ribbon. A true lesson in conservation of energy and fluid skill, art and physical labour combined that I have seldom since seen. That was a good 65 years ago and I have never forgotten it, can see him swinging away in my mind's eye now.

It is an art to learn to swing one of those and not beat yourself up doing it!
