Garden Hoe | Square Blade with Handturned Black Walnut Handle
I build this garden hoe 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 our go to tool if we have 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.
“These tools were the hit of Christmas. I gave them to some avid dirt diggers who absolutely loved them. This is the perfect special gift! Anyway, I really loved these tools. They are beautifully done. I’ll gladly recommend your work/products to anyone.” -Kathleen B.
Handcrafted in Bozeman, Montana by 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 of these garden tools 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 tools & 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.
