Get to the root of the problem. Completely
Goutweed is edible; it is even considered a very tasty wild vegetable. But at the latest when goutweed and some other weeds in the garden and raised bed threaten to become the main source of food, gardeners* feel compelled to do something about their wild growth. Now many herbs, especially goutweed, form a rampant rhizome - due to the underground shoots, it is not easy to remove the uninvited guests completely. Even a small piece of root can sprout again and start anew to conquer your beds.
This weeder takes the problem by the root. Its narrow, pointed tool head allows you to loosen the soil around the weed without unintentionally cutting its root, so you can pull out the herb and root in one piece. Another advantage: The elongated round tip gives you a greater reach and allows you to work in a targeted manner even in closely planted beds without damaging the roots of your cultivated plants.
A useful side effect: even as a joint cleaner, the forged tool head proves a strong performer. And if (just) no undesirable wild weeds are growing in your garden, the goutweed weeder is also ideally suited for regularly loosening the soil between your bedding plants. In this way, you reduce water loss through evaporation, so that soil moisture is retained for longer. For all your work, the handle made of solid ash wood lies well in the hand and allows you a powerful grip.
Garden tools with character
With forging, the Krumpholz family knows its stuff. Based in the Franconian Forest, the ancestors acquired the first hammer mill of their own - the Guttenberg Hammer - in 1799 and produced tools and other everyday items from forged iron. Today, the company's fortunes are in the hands of the eighth generation. The garden tools that leave the production site, which is still in its old location but has long since been modernized and enlarged, are tools of the first order: shaped under the weight of the forge hammer to suit their area of use, compacted and reinforced where necessary, provided with sharpened edges or blades and fitted with high-quality handles made of ash wood. Free-form forging, as practiced at Krumpholz, requires special skill and a sense of proportion. The steel used, a Swedish steel with chrome-molybdenum content, is tough, strong and easy to clean.
