I build this square bladed hoe for weeding against the edges of raised beds and scraping micro weeds from the top of dry soil.
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 steel 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 for gardening.
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.
Fisher Blacksmithing, Tuli Fisher, and his collection of garden tools have been recently featured in Sunset magazine, Horticulture Magazine, Forbes Life, Western Art and Architecture, Southern Lady, and Zone 4 Gardening magazines.
Quality workmanship, well-balanced form, and an emphasis on usability make these tools a unique addition to any home or garden.
