Premium quality garden hand tools made of boron steel forged in Sweden, with shock-resistant and nearly indestructible European ash handles, by a firm making tools this way for the Dutch agri-business since 1898. Expertly turned and polished handles (each with a lanyard hole) are well-balanced and a pleasure to hold. Tough beveled blades with a burnished black patina are sharp, durable and will not bend under normal use.
The delightful and unique forged Tulip Trowel breaks up soil like a fork and functions like a trowel (with a “belly” to move soil and mulch as needed in garden planting) It’s an excellent choice for soil with a high clay content. Trowel head is 4-1/2” long & 4” wide. Overall length, 11”. Weight, ½ lb.
The Root & Rock Trowel has a heavy-duty extra-thick blade to go with its long and unusually narrow shape, making it excellent for deep penetration in confined areas. Ideal for rock gardens, transplanting, and in areas with dense roots. The length of the blade is 5”; overall length, 16”. Weight, ½ lb.More Info
DeWit Tools are a direct connection to the time when the best tools often came from the village blacksmith. Innovated and evolved from experience and made to last forever, a DeWit-made tool represents the closest possible connection between the tool maker and the tool user to be found in today’s global market. Willem de Wit opened his blacksmith shop in Kornhorn, a small village in northern Holland, in 1898. He did all the things a country village blacksmith did back then – he was a farrier, repaired kettles and sold bicycles. When his sons joined him the business grew, making tools for agriculture. A DeWit tool came to be known to combine good design, skilled craftsmanship and the very best materials, and soon their spades and hoes were in demand all over Holland. The 4th generation of the de Wit family today runs the company by the same principles and standards. Skilled hand forging may be augmented with modern techniques and equipment where appropriate, but the essential connection between the designer/maker and the user endures – only now the de Wits listen to gardeners and farmers from all over the world. And their continued insistence on only the best materials can be readily appreciated in the use of FSC-certified ash handles and Swedish boron steel – the same steel used on a popular brand of bulldozer blades!
