Scythes used to be made in the brick house just across the motorway through Folkedal, up until the middle of the 1950s (Svein Nord).
THE SCYTHE SMITHS IN FOLKEDAL
For many years the Folkedal scythe had a good reputation. Immediately above the highway through Folkedal there is a long brick building, on the inner side of the river. Here production of scythes went on to the beginning of the 1950s.
