Parts of a scythe:
7-Snath or snaith
The video showed using a cradle scythe, which I understand is a real art. I struggled enough with a simple tool, but I am told that scythes are quite easy to use if you get someone to show you how. It is apparently a rhythm that one can do for long periods.

The Mowers - painting by George Clausen (1852 - 1944)
I have these two pictures(4x6) sitting on my desk. Mary and I like to think of them as ourselves, when we moved to a little farmhouse forty years ago, in a rural setting. Coming from the city was a big change, and mowing the acre and a half was a challenge and a half. The painter is Henry Bacon.
