"Although the scythe isn't pre-eminent among the weapons of war, anyone who has been on the wrong end of, say, a peasants' revolt will know that in skilled hands it is fearsome."
― Terry Pratchett, Mort

The ability to be highly skilled in wielding any scythe. Variation of Weapon Proficiency.

Also Called


The user can wield a scythe with tremendous dexterity and skill, accurately and precisely slicing through the enemies without being hindered by the scythe's heavy weight. Minor variations include a sickle — a smaller variation of the scythe — or a kusarigama — a sickle with a chain attached.
