Soul Eater Episode 48 HD - Lord Death battles Asura (37)

Lord Death, a notable scyte-meister.

Scythe-meisters (鎌職人, Kama Shokunin) are meisters whom are capable of employing the usage of a scythe, fighting with it similar to that of a pole-arm like weapon.[1] When training, aspiring scythe-meisters typically learn basic maneuvers such as twirling.[2]

Among scythe-meisters, there are special techniques commonly employed. The only known attack is the witch-hunt technique[3]. Enhanced version of the technique (i.e Demon-Hunt) are also employed, though these cases are more select and are dependent on the amount of courage one possess.[4]
