|"The Sickle Blade Sharpener"
This intricately geared piece of farmland
history is for sharpening the sickle blade on
an old horse drawn hay mower.
In raised lettering, on top, it says,
Another “rescue”, this came from a junk pile
in rural West Texas.
It was completely disassembled, cleaned up
I added new oak handles.
It is completely functional, linseed oil is
wiped on all metal & wood parts to maintain
the antique luster, and the base mount is an
aged piece of white oak.
A grand display piece from a time in
America’s history when equipment was made
to last, this could sharpen a sickle blade
It stands 21” in overall height and weighs
Price is $450
