He Sharpens His Scythe Using A Lead Hammer
My sonís father-in-law, Dietmar Ranft, lives in Germany and he sharpens his scythe the old fashioned way using a lead hammer. He made a 3-legged stool for the job which has a metal peg that he pounds against. After flattening the edge, he fine tunes it by filing. He says a hammer-sharpened scythe is the quickest and best way to control small patches of weeds around his farm. (Rex Gogerty, Hubbard, Iowa)
