Thanks to Paul Redding for putting together our first scythe video as a bit of weekend fun.
It aims to demonstrate that yes, you can certainly mow a lawn with a scythe. It also has some interesting slow motion which demonstrates the slicing action of the scythe very well.
The nature of the wide-angle lens tends to ‘curve’ reality a little – the circular sweep of the the scythe doesn’t look so circular from certain angles, but the video gives a couple of new views of scythe mowing that we haven’t come across before, so we hope you enjoy it.
I personally think the most effective part is right at the end where Paul has put me in reverse, high speed – it really shows the difference between before and after… or more correctly, after and before!
