Gardening Square Blade Garden Hoe, Fisher Blacksmithing
This garden hoe was built with a squared-off head so that it can be easily re-sharpened making it a great choice for garden beds that need a little extra attention. This is a go to tool for stubborn weeds starting to invade the beds. The curve of the tools creates a wonderful balance point that allows the weight of the tools to work with the gardener. Dimensions are approx. 12″ long by 2″ wide.
Each tool is individually crafted using traditional blacksmithing techniques. Steel is heated to a red glow in the forge and then shaped over the anvil with a hammer. All joinery is done using solid steel rivets. And, each tool is set into its own hand turned handle creating a long-lasting garden tool with no welds. American Black Walnut is used for handles. The tight grain of this strong hardwood makes it very durable. Best of all, it just feels good in your hand.
Handcrafted in Bozeman, Montana by Tuli Fisher; a member of the British Artist Blacksmith Association, as well as the Artist-Blacksmith’s Association of North America. These garden tools are an example of fine American Craft and the result is tools that you won’t want to take your hands off of! Hand forged metal set into a black walnut handle makes a set of these garden tools the ideal gift for the discriminating gardener, wedding couple, or anyone who has an eye for high-quality traditional crafts and a passion for gardening.
