Peening in the kitchen

Peening in the kitchenI’ve got a fully-booked ‘Learn to Mow’ course tomorrow with a group of beginners coming over to Cumbria to learn to use a scythe. So today I’m peening the blades in preparation. When you come on one of my courses I want you to have the best learning experience which means providing good tools and materials. I’m fortunate at Sprint Mill to have some lovely meadow grass to cut and by peening the blades I can ensure the scythes are in tip-top conditions.
Yes, I’m peening in the kitchen – my housemate doesn’t mind and she’s gone out anyway.
