This narrow trowel is a traditional shape, often called a tulip trowel or perennial trowel. I’ve made this same design for 19 years. I started cutting the teeth in the side a few years ago and it’s a good improvement. Its narrow shape is very useful for working with perennials, planting, transplanting and dividing bulbs. The sharp teeth on the side increase the trowels ability to maneuver around a root for better removal or to dig through hard soil. Because it’s long and stout you can get some leverage against those tap roots. The narrow profile also makes it an excellent choice for urban gardeners or anyone who has a container garden. It's also great for edging along the borders of flower beds! It is approx 13" long, 2" wide
"I bought your tools for my wife as a Christmas gift. She showed me your website before, and said, "Just look at this trowel isn't it beautiful? I'd love to have one!" (Hint! Hint!) When I asked her "What was your favorite gift this Christmas?", she said "It was a tossup between the garden tools and the diamond earrings." On a 5 star scale I give them 6!" -Mark C.
Handcrafted in Bozeman, Montana by Tuli Fisher (that's me)! These garden tools are a select collection of garden tools marking an example of fine American Craft and resulting in 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 feels good in your hand.
