Made to our specifications, these high-quality tools will easily last a lifetime. Besides the beech handles, all components are stainless steel for durability and corrosion resistance. The blade and tines are well formed and secured to the tangs with strong, smooth welds, and have bevelled or tapered ends where required to penetrate soil easily. Shaped for comfort, the handles are lacquered and have a ferrule that caps the end grain to prevent swelling or splitting.
This set of four includes a three-prong cultivator, a one-prong cultivator, a trowel and a Jekyll weeder.
The rounded tines of the three-prong cultivator move through soil easily, aerating it while uprooting weeds. The one-prong cultivator has a 1/2" wide flattened tine that can be used to make a trough for planting seeds in a smaller bed, then turned on its side to cover them with soil, as well as for digging dirt and weeds out of rock walls and other narrow gaps.
The trowel has a 5 1/4" long, 2 3/4" wide blade and an offset handle for knuckle clearance. Using the Jekyll weeder, you can remove shallow-rooted weeds by lifting them from below or loosen the soil around deep roots to make them easier to pull out.
All the tools are well balanced, with overall lengths between 9 3/4" and 12 1/4".
