Scythe fair 2014

Mainly just pictures for this post, just to give you an idea what it was like.

The food was great and lots of it.

Not that many English scythes in this line up, mostly Austrian. 




 My good friend Mark Allery, not only a great bodger but also a championship scyther.


Nick Gibbs of Living woods fame. In the great British spirit Nick is planning to fly over to France with his homemade helicopter hat. I see Nick at most shows and he makes and sells toy helicopters in-between drumming up business for his magazines. I have an article about putting wooden handles on a MaChris knife and a fan bird push knife, in the forth coming issue.

 The line up for the finals.
Of course with all those sharp scythes it got a bit much for some.
