Why Buy Handcrafted Garden Tools? When the big box stores are offering garden trowels for under $10, why should you pay more? Is handmade really better? Buying small, local, and artisan are the choices that conscious consumers are making in terms of food, jewelry, and even clothing. But garden tools? Won’t any old trowel from Wal-Mart do the job? Gardening at home is a personal activity shared with family and friends. A successful garden results in shared produce and the love of gardening shared with children and grandchildren. Historically, craftspeople have a personal attachment with their hand tools. Gardeners are no different. The time and energy spent picking out the right seeds, creating your own garden, or shopping at local farmers markets is time and energy well spent. Why not close the loop and enjoy using handcrafted garden tools. There is an added personal connection that comes with purchasing directly from a craftsman you can identify and talk with. Supporting small American businesses means more money floating in our economy here at home, buying items made in the USA offers pride of ownership with the added benefit of durability that you just won’t find in cheaply mass produced items shipped from Communist China. Here at Fisher Blacksmithing, I make tools to last. And I don’t just mean to last a lifetime. If properly cared for, my heirloom quality hand crafted garden tools can be passed down from generation to generation, right along with the love of gardening you hope to instill in your children and grandchildren. Solid, sturdy blacksmithing of high carbon steel with riveted joints and hardwood handles will last much longer than any plastic or cheaply made metal tool you might find at a big box store. You’ll be proud to put these hand crafted garden tools to work in your garden and proud to have them hanging in your garden shed. A beauty to look at and a joy to work with, these tools will remind you of your commitment to quality, craftsmanship, and sustainability.
