Perry Maine Snaths are made in our workshop here on the 45th parallel. We've developed our own design incorporating innovations that we believe are improvements, lightweight, well balanced with joints that fit tightly without annoying play. Native white ash is used for the shaft with a rock maple stem and comfortable, full size, round handles of birch. The handles are positioned for a comfortable upright stance that does not strain your back. Complete with high quality mounting ring, wrench and assembly instructions.

$60 for either straight or bent.
Guidelines for proper fit
With the blade mounted, hold the scythe upright next to you. The lower grip should be about hip level (the level of a belt on a pair of pants which will be 3-4 inches higher than your hip to ground measurement). The upper grip should come just under your chin to your upper lip. Place your elbow on the lower grip and extend your fingers toward the upper grip, it should be out of reach by 1–3 inches.
Fitting a snath is not an exact science. The variables of the human body and your mowing technique make a very complex equation. These guidelines are only a starting point.
