The lawn is mostly flat but the second mowing strip is not – the start of the the swath is about 6 inches lower than the end, as the blade sits in a well from an unfinished path (you can hear the blade bottoming on gravel). There’s also a hollow close the camera that takes a few attempts to sink the belly into. Objects struck toward the end of the first run are the dog’s bones.
90cm Falci model 100 blade on a Canadian Mennonite snath. The tang on this blade is deliberately set very low to accommodate a more crouching, wide-reaching stance – which makes it look and feel more awkward in close-to-body mowing, so I’m hunched quite a lot in the places where I’m not ‘speed mowing’.
You may notice a lot of rust on the blade – it was left outside last season. Honed with an Arctic Fox whetstone as part of ongoing testing.
