Hand Forged Dutch Delicate Greenhouse Trowel

Availability: In stock (6)
Until the day that we have our own greenhouses—full of blooming tropical lianas, orchids, and fruiting citrus trees—this gorgeous, small-scale, hand-forged stainless steel trowel will have to make do with the pleasures of managing our menagerie of houseplants. While dividing maidenhairs and re-potting prayer plants isn't *quite* as glamorous as taking our coffee surrounded by flowering jasmine, there is a humble joy in using the right tool for a job well done. The only thing "delicate" about it is its size relative to other trowels. 5"

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.
