Pathmaker Pickaxe and Hoe

Made In Germany

This will clear out just about anything you can put in its way—this is a tool for the heavy, difficult clearing work.  If the Pathmaker can’t handle it, you probably need to bring in heavy machinery.  Similar to a mattock, it combines a pickaxe on one side and a heavy-duty garden hoe on the other, perfect for breaking up tough or heavily compacted soils, especially ones with high clay content.  Use it to do heavy lifting, prepare pathways, dig large planting holes, or simply break up stubborn soil.  The hoe face is 7” long x 5” wide, and the pickaxe measures 7 ½”.  The 41 ½” ash handle will stand up to years and years of heavy use. Total weight 5.7 lbs.

A Behind-the-Scenes Look at Our Maker

We wanted to share with you an inside look at a 4th generation family business that makes some of our best garden digging tools and most of our axes, hatchets, and clearing tools. 

It’s located in Germany near Heidelberg, not far from the Rhine River. The factory and forge are run by Tobias runs with his wife Dovile. In my 30+ years of being in the tool business, I’ve learned the exceptional people are those who always have an eye out for quality and can easily discuss both the use of the tools, the process of making them, as well as the craftsman who work for them. Tobias fit that mark perfectly – it’s in his blood. 

From the Hickory handles sourced in the USA to the forges powered by wood waste the details are considered.
