About Clive

I first became aware of scythes as a child. My father used to cut the long grass around our apple trees, it seemed effortless as the blade swept through the falling grass.

I soon realised how much effort was required when I picked up a heavy English scythe.  This image stayed with me throughout my life until I visited the West Country Scythe Festival where I tried out an Austrian Scythe and saw the future.  It is light, fully adjustable, effortless and a joy to use.

I have completed the SABI Scything Instructor’s Course.

I am a teaching member of the Scything Association of Britain and Ireland.
