Swedish term or phrase: drätt(er)
From an early 19th-century estate inventory: "2 plogar med drätter - 2 plogar utan drätter - 1 kjälka med drätt." I've also found other estate inventories online, which refer to "harvar med drätter," "ok med tilhörige drätter," etc. At first, I thought it was a reference to the blade(s) on a plow or harrow, but that doesn't explain the word's use in relation to a kälka or ok. Any suggestions?
