Scythe Handle

Description:

This worn and weathered scythe handle is particularly worn and partly rotted in the area where the blade was attached. A bolt passes through that section and has a bar of metal attached. One wooden handle has disappeared leaving the metal which was its base. Hall says a Mount Currie native used the scythe to which this handle once belonged. See Eaton's 1901 Spring and Summer Catalogue pp. 283 for a snath (scythe handle) priced at 65c.
