Hand Forged Dutch Dandelion Digger

Availability: In stock (3)
Our grandfather's version of this tool was always bent. Hard clay, stubborn disposition (which we definitely inherited), and soft metal. Hmph. This hand-forged, ergonomic, stainless steel take on the classic—with its deep dipping shaft and sharp dovetail blade—will stand up to even the brusquest gardener's ire over invasive weeds and their insane taproots. "Buddy" would be so pleased.

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.
