HI Brian, just  a heads up, I'm shorter than the average bear, and my hands are the size of a 12 year old's. I'm looking forward to the class. Regards, Celt

I have bought blades and parts from. Alexander at Scythe Works in Victoria BC, he is really helpful and can answer many of your questions about blades if you have them before you take the class. maybe there will be other people at the class that would like to order from him.  It is good to put a group order together to save on shipping. 
and his brothers site has lots of good info as well.
