The scythe export company “Simon Redtenbacher seel Wwe & Sons” in Kirchdorf an der Krems existed since 1661 and was represented at the most important transshipment points Kiev, Moscow, Kraków, Warsaw, Königsberg and Stettin. In the seventies of the 19th century, the Upper Austrian scythe production faced a crisis. That’s when Simon Redtenbacher entered scythe production and bought the Geyerhammer in 1881. With that, there was a profound change from the old workshops to a modern scythe and sickle industry... You will find more about this exhibition inside the museum!
