do with improvements in adjustable handles for
snaths. In agricultural tools of the scythe variety,
there is the blade, and the snath, and to the snath
is attached an adjustable hand grip or handle for

a wrench is placed on ‘the nut 9 and the nut is
tightened down to pull the split shank 5 into the
beveled opening of the ferrule 6 thereby tighten
ing the loop about the snath to hold it in adjusted
position. It has been found, however, that the
connection between the loop and snath which is
frictional tends to work loose.
To remedy this condition, I provide a lug It] on
the inner face of the loop which selectively fits into

the blade with reference to the ground, and the 10 a series of spaced, aligned indentations II in a
