Hand Forged Dutch Children's Gardening Fork

Availability: In stock (1)
Little people love plants. Given half a chance (and a little space to explore/possibly maul the oregano...which can *totally take it! let it go!*) they can truly be wonderful helpers in the garden. We got the Children's Gardening Fork with our littlest Olmsteads in mind. It is, indeed, gloriously suited to letting them actually contribute their tiny, beautiful labors-but its smooth-bored tines and nimble disposition also have us reaching for it ourselves, for everything from separating and transporting divided thyme to heeling in delicate bulbs. 30" long.

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.
