Remakes of historical tools.
It used to be that in addition to their superior materials, tools were also appreciated for their detail work. In the search for such tools, we teamed up with a collector of historical garden tools to look at old examples of such utensils. One result of that search is the pair of hand tools manufactured for us according to historical models by the Sneeboer tool smithy in North Holland.
The tool heads are made of forged, waxed carbon steel, the handles are ash treated with linseed oil. The head of the shovel is fastened with a brass collar while the head of the hoe is attached with a stable sleeve to a somewhat longer handle. Garden implements like these were last manufactured in England in the 1930s.
