Made to our specifications, these high-quality cultivators will easily last a lifetime. Besides the beech handles, all components are stainless steel for durability and corrosion resistance. The rounded tines move through soil easily, aerating it while uprooting weeds. They are well formed and secured to the tangs with strong, smooth welds. Shaped for comfort, the handles are lacquered and have a ferrule that caps the end grain to prevent swelling or splitting.
