I Forge Iron

A nice forging . What is it ?

To use; you find a convenient tree stump in/near the field and drive the scythe anvil in till it hits the crossbar  (if the stump is rotting).

As to how flat: they varied with style and wear.  Did you read up on:  peening a scythe      lots of info out there including videos!

The toggle could have also been a way to assist with removing it from the log or stump it was driven into I could see it having a tool that went with it similar to the claw on a claw hammer that went a little into the hole in the toggle and was used as a leverage stop to pull it out so as to not lose the tool. Could have also been a way of securing it to their belt.
