Hand-forged in the Netherlands, this classic digging fork's sharp, tapered, perfectly spaced stainless steel tines are flat on top and subtly rounded on the back‰ÛÓa dream for loosening, lifting, and turning soil. Also ideal for: tossing hay to the fillies or for recreating "American Gothic" (except: with smiles, because using this tool is so nice). A paddle-style Ash handle and shorter length‰ÛÓ3'10"‰ÛÓmake this easy to use in smaller garden spaces.
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‰ÛÓwhich 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.
