DeWit Potting trowel with beach grip. The blade is wider than a normal trowel and is curved higher to hold more compost. It also works well potting in flower pots because of the round shape. Well-crafted heart shaped trowel for general potting and trough work. Sharpened edge and scooped shape. Every De Wit garden tool is handmade in Holland; hand-forged from solid, top quality steel, shaped, sharpened and finally fitted with an oiled, solid ash wood handle of the finest quality. The Dutch are rightly regarded as makers of the finest gardening tools. De Wit have been around longer than anyone. They started in 1898 and the 4th generation of De Wits are now in charge of the business; one is a trained wood turner, the other trained as a blacksmith. De Wit forge their tools from carbon steel in the traditional way. Carbon Steel is naturally tougher than stainless steel and is not prone to metal fatigue. De Wit also burnish their steel. This not only helps to protect it for longer but gives it a patina that blackens it - just like traditional English tools from the Edwardian era. All De Wit tools have turned hardwood handles of oiled Ash. Ash is not only very strong but resists shock better than woods like oak or beech, which is why it was traditionally used for Axe handles. The result is a beautiful tool to hold in the hand but rugged and durable. They feel so natural to use that they are like an extension of the person that uses them. These tools will give you a lifetime of use, until you hand them on. Size Head: 11.5cm long x 10cm wide ( 4.5 x 4) Total Length: 25cm long ( 9.75)
