An exceptionally beautiful heirloom quality Planting Trowel, handmade in Bozeman, Montana by Tuli Fisher of Fisher Blacksmithing.
Built to be simple and sturdy, this Planting Trowel is reminiscent of what you might find in your grandparents garden shed. This trowel has a much wider blade to hold a lot of soil, perfect for transplanting. The pointed shape allows you to use it in the firm dirt of a farm field as well as the garden beds.
Tuli's tools are a true example of fine American craftsmanship. Each piece is meticulously crafted and built individually using traditional blacksmithing techniques. Steel is heated in his forge, then shaped over the anvil by hand. All the joinery is completed using solid steel rivets. It is then set into a hand-turned solid American Black Walnut handle without welds. The tight grain of this strong hardwood makes it extremely durable and sits comfortably in your hand for long use. An exceptional tool that feels good and will stand the test of time.
A perfect gift anyone with an eye for heirloom craftsmanship to fuel their passion for gardening.
Approximately 12″ long by 4.5″ wide.
Handmade tools have more weight to them than you may be accustomed to which is what makes them so durable. They require care to maintain their lifespan and should be stored out of the elements and treated regularly with mineral oil to prevent rust and keep wood from drying out.
