Made entirely by hand from solid bronze (a copper alloy), the smooth, gently tapered handle of this swan-necked draw hoe is of beautifully turned lime wood. The handle is extra long to help you maintain a more upright working posture. With its manoeuvrability and ease of use halped by the elegant swan or gooseneck, pull the blade of the flat, rectangular head towards you to earth up potatoes or create a trench for sowing beans; use one corner for a shallower drill for seed sowing; or bring the head down in a chopping motion to break up clods of earth, getting it ready for planting.
As with our other copper tools, this full-sized garden hoe combines functionality and elegance. It is light and nicely weighted, and so effortless to use with minimal friction. Copper will not break even under considerable stress and can easily be bent back into shape, reworked and sharpened. This copper garden tool will last for years, developing a graceful bronze patina over time, without rusting.
It is suitable for daily work in cultivated garden soils. As you work, you will enrich the soil with copper trace elements and thereby provide your plants with essential nutrients.
