Manufactum root spade stainless steel
Our root spade is the perfect example of how we could make good things even better. Look for details like the extended spout fastened with brass rivets and the oiled ash wood handle. The entire tool head is hand forged and the blade edges are actually razor sharp - a spade they can use to successfully tackle even sprawling bamboo roots.
Never-Failing: Non-Slip Blade.
For use in already planted areas. The thin blade makes digging out weed roots easy – also good for breaking up larger herbaceous plants. The notches in the extra-sharp blade make sure that the roots don’t slip away from the cutting edge.
Manufactum Gardening Tools. Hand-forged Partners.
You’ve got strong feelings for your plants?! Good. The same may apply to good tools. Think of the small moments when they compensate for the effort that is usually involved in their use by “cooperating” effectively and offering a pleasant functional and haptic experience in return – for decades to come.
For the Better Part: the Steel Parts.
We have two different variations of stainless steel processed at Sneeboer in North Holland: a tougher one for the springs and grommets of the handle holders containing a higher amount of alloy and one containing a lower amount of alloy; the latter is more easily forgeable, resulting in excellently shaped functional parts. Additionally, we have the springs and grommets lengthened on all our tools. These particular dimensions guarantee enhanced stability during work and less risk of breakage for the handle. Brass rivets fasten the grommets permanently and securely.
There Is More to Them Than Fine Timber: the Handles.
It goes without saying that we provide you with tool handles made from immaculate ash wood. We have it checked thoroughly to ensure that the grain is as vertical as possible. This working step reduces the risk of breakage to a minimum and guarantees the swinging stability that characterizes an excellent tool handle. For further refinement, linseed oil varnish is applied to the cleanly sanded wood surface.
