I build this large hand forged trowel to be large enough to move soil efficiently on a bench and also pointed to penetrate soil in the field.
Handcrafted in Bozeman, Montana by traditional blacksmith Tuli Fisher (that's me). 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 the ideal gift for the discriminating gardener, wedding couple, or anyone (that includes you!) who has an eye for high-quality traditional crafts and a passion
I build each tool individually 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.
My garden tools have been recently featured in Sunset Magazine, Horticulture Magazine, Forbes Lifestyle, Western Art and Architecture, and Rocky Mountain Gardening.
