      if you live somewhere where there are auctions of farm/garden equipment, a scythe is usually in the mix.

      One of my favorite little-known farm accessories. The cow magnet is a real thing.

      I've seen new scythes for sale in farm supply stores. I would think that a large or rural garden supply store would have them. Don't bother with big box home and builder stores.

      Seriously, a farm supply store that doesn't laugh at you if you ask about cow magnets will have scythes in stock. It's probably easier to just ask about scythes.

      Ask. They probably won't be on display.

      Worse case, just about any business that's ag-related will know where to find them. Yellow pages.

      I've found stacks and stacks of antique scythes. Most snaths are splintered and cracked. They can't be repaired.
