Learning to peen a scythe with the jig

A second day in Cumbria with two of the estate team learning how to peen Austrian scythes with the peening jig.

Lewis and Lee already maintain a lot of the other tools for the team so they were chosen to learn to peen the scythes. There was plenty to practise on and we covered how to repair damage to the blade as well as peening for optimal sharpness and mowing.
