Natural Stone $16
Rozsutec Stone

Rozsutec fine grit stone will give the final polish to your edge. Freshly hammered edges do well with this stone. Excellent for all knives, and cutting edges. About 8½" long.

Rozsutec Stone $18
Synthetic Stone

Synthetic stone. An open pore stone that cuts fast. Uniform consistency, milled on all sides. Good for various edge tools. Works well to set the initial edge after peening, for light repairs to damaged blades, sharpening the hard steel of an American style blade.Not for regular use as it removes too much steel quickly. 9" long.

Synthetic Stone $15
Whetstone Holders

Whetstone holders are partially filled with water and hook conveniently on your belt. Scythe stones are used wet. This keeps the grain of the stone open, provides lubrication and makes a slurry of stone particles that will enhance the cutting action. Honing the edge is done frequently in the field. As soon as you feel a loss of efficiency in the cut, it's time to dress the blade. Available in sturdy plastic and galvanized steel. The plastic will hold two stones.

Cow Horn Whetstone Holder

Peening Jig

Peening jig simplifies hammer sharpening of the scythe's cutting edge. The edge is thinned by cold working the metal with either a hammer and anvil or the use of this jig. The jig is mounted into a pre-drilled block of wood. The blade's edge is placed on the flat of the jig lightly touching the post. Cap #1 is put over the post and the blade is worked uniformly with a hammer making a primary bevel. Cap #2 is then used for the finishing bevel. For information on how to use the peening jig, visit our online peening workshop.

Wide and Narrow Anvils


Wide and Narrow Anvils
Blades can be prepared with either of these two styles of anvils. The Wide Anvil is used with a cross peen hammer with the blade held concave side up. The Narrow Anvil is used with a flat hammer with the blade concave side down. Size is about 1" across the face.

Wide Anvil $42
Narrow Anvil $42
Schroeckenfux Anvil

Schroeckenfux Anvil
Developed at Schroeckenfux, the same factory that makes our blades, by one of their top technicians, this anvil will satisfy both the beginner and the experienced scythe user who wants to try free hand peening. The exposed anvil is about 4" tall with an equally long spike embedded in your peening log. It has a height adjustable platform to help support the blade so the edge rests on the anvil at the desired angle. The radius of the anvil face is wide and provides plenty of surface under the blade's edge. It is much easier to keep the blade on this wide radius than on the radius of our traditional narrow anvil. There is also an integral guide that keeps the blade’s edge properly positioned on the anvil radius. Similar in use as our narrow anvil, the blade is laid upside down on the anvil. The user lightly hammers on the back side of the blade to draw out and shape the edge. This is an extremely well made tool of high quality, hardened steel. You will appreciate the subtle hammer rebound and response as you peen. As your experience grows you may find that the platform and guide are no longer needed. If so, both can be easily removed. Without the platform you will find that square support bar handy for resting your hand as you guide the blade across the anvil.

*Does not come with log or wood base. See our peening log below.

Schroeckenfux Anvil $80


Our hammer is a combination of wide and cross peen faces and weighs 500 grams (approx.16 oz). Its use should be restricted to anvil peening and the faces kept clean and smooth to insure a good finish on the blade. For the peening jig any 16 ounce, flat faced hammer will do. If you don't have one try your local hardware store, or just set your phasers to "peen".

Picard Scythe Hammer

Picard Scythe Hammer

Recently added to our inventory is a scythe hammer forged by the German company Picard. This is the top of the line hammer for freehand peening. It is a very well made and finely balanced peening hammer. The hardened faces give excellent rebound and feedback. You can feel as well as see the changes as the blade's edge responds. Both the face and cross-peen have slight convexity to improve performance, accuracy and limit marring of the scythe's cutting edge. This is an expensive hammer and is meant to be used for freehand peening. The Picard is similar in shape and weight to our Scythe Hammer # 9018 but of higher quality. We recommend restricting the use of either of these fine hammers to freehand peening to keep the faces in good condition. Not recommended for use with a peening jig. Weight 500 grams/16 oz.

Peening Log

Peening Log. We suggest the best way to mount a peening jig or anvil(s) is into a log. Wood is solid enough to withstand the blows of a hammer but resilient enough to absorb the shock and not transfer it back through the hammer into your arm. We were surprised when a few of customers called to ask "where can I get a log?" We were unprepared for those folks who live in treeless parts of the world. Our first suggestion was to check with the local lumber yard for a section of 6 x 6 or larger timber to make a peening stand. Since Maine is well forested our other solution is this ready-made "Peening Log". Scythe Supply's peening log is made from local cedar or spruce about 6"-8" in diameter and approximately 22" tall. For most people this is just the right height to support the overhanging blade on a knee while you sit comfortably on a chair or bench. One end of the log is predrilled for holes to accept peening jig and caps, and/or two anvils. We staple a rope, including two small loops, around the log to hold your peening hammer and another carrying loop over the top. The peening log is light weight. You can easily carry it to the field so it is handy when needed.

*Hammer, anvils & peening jig are sold separately.

**Cannot ship internationally.
