Using this rake is like hearing angels singing. And they're singing a football fight song because IT'S FALL, GUYS! Seriously, though, this spring tine rake is gloriously useful for so much more than seasonal leaf clean up. The subtly flexible, wide-grasping, hand-forged tines mean that they effortlessly float over uneven ground or roots without snagging, all while easily gathering up all manners of debris. It is such a pleasure to use it makes us cry for any time we ever spent mucking around getting leaves or vines all stuck up in a plastic rake. Specially constructed 60" Ash handle is laid on a stainless steel core and finished with two brass rivets.
About the line: There is a certain feeling to picking up a well-made tool. It is balanced and beautiful, natural and nuanced, potent and powerful. It is a deeply human feeling, the same one that the huntress feels for the sling, the poet feels for the pen, or the warrior for the sword. When acknowledged, it gives an almost mystical majesty to the most mundane tasks and it is that feeling which often makes a tool a "favorite". Sneeboer tools have it in...spades. Hand-forged in Holland from rust-resistant stainless steel with simple, beautiful hand-turned hardwood handles, these tools are as hardy as they are handsome. The 4th generation line also has a deep commitment to maximizing both aesthetic and functionality-which means classic tools get subtle, thoughtful updates or pared down their essential forms. Using this line of Dutch implements is as great a pleasure as watching a garden flourish.
