Perennial Fork by Sneeboer
Optimal intermediate size. The perennial fork.
Forged at Sneeboer in North Holland, this perennial fork with stainless steel tool head is the ideal gardening tool for all work in a kneeling position and in narrow, densely planted beds, as shallow-growing roots are spared. In terms of shape, it bridges the gap between a spade and a flower trowel and can therefore also be a good help when transplanting perennials or cutting out roots. The perennial fork is also ideal for loosening the soil or preparing planting holes in already planted beds. In all these activities, the design of the tool with the short handle and the straight attached functional part allows a wrist-friendly work - the low weight not yet included.
The idea for this tool comes from the famous English show garden Great Dixter in East Sussex, where the great gardener and garden writer Christopher Lloyd - now a garden legend - and his "Head Gardener" Fergus Garret worked together on the design for the tool.
West Frisian Handicraft by Sneeboer.
For more than 100 years, the family of the West Frisian blacksmith Jaap Sneeboer has been supplying their Dutch fellow citizens, known to be incessantly engaged in farming, dyking and horticulture, with the tools they need to do so. At Sneeboer, they use two different types of stainless steel for their traditional Frisian horticultural tools: a tougher one (with higher degrees of alloying) for the springs and grommets holding the handle and low-alloy steel that responds better to forging for the functional parts in the narrow sense. They weld the individual construction elements together, then ground and polish them by hand.
Forged Garden Tools.
It has long become common practice to stamp and roll garden tools. However, we hardly need to describe the difference; we want to point out that forging is the only way to deal with a tool in all its details and strengthen the material in those parts where this is necessary for functional reasons.
