Taking Measurements for your Scythe
Sizing it up . . .
Taking your measurements for your custom-fit snath is simple - just pull out your favorite tape measure and provide the following 3 measurements:
- Overall height (with shoes on).
- Ground to hip - the head or ball of the femur not your waist. For a man this is the widest part of your hips. Feel for the pivot point of the joint while moving your leg.
- Elbow to outstretched middle finger (the cubit).
