If these look like they’re hand-made, it’s because they have been forged on an anvil by hand. Different cultural trends over many hundreds of years have led Asian farm workers (these tools come from South Korea) to design their own tools far from western influences. Some are world-class classics of design – like these two. The 6-1/2" wide Triangular Hoe will allow you to move around a huge amount of loose soil on your hands and knees. And the double curve-twisted conical shape of the Asian Digger excels at creating deep furrows (up to 5" deep) in loose soil – like a little hand plow. Upon inspection, they will seem quite crudely made – which they are – but their function is superb. These are exceptionally lightweight tools, especially valued because of that alone.
