These tools represent hundreds of years of practical development 

We try to achieve that delicate balance of a fine gardening tool that will last but is affordable.

resulting in tool designs that work well and are easy on the body.
We have reproduced the design of the English transplanting widger and it is actually made in California.

The Cobra Head cultivator has been a hit since we started carrying it - another adaptation of a traditional design made in the USA.
