Straight snath making – handgrips

handgripsThe 30 Russian snaths for the Anna Karenina movie are coming along well.  This week I’ve been in the woods looking for handgrips to fit to the straight snaths. I’m using the opportunity to try out a few ideas for designs of grip, with different natural curves and some carved grips. Along with Viv Goodings, who’s organising the extra for the mowing scenes, I’ve decided to fit the grips and tune the snaths for each person once we get to the site.
