The selection of different types of trowels offered by Sneeboer is vast. We've tended to stick to the Transplanting Trowel and Old Dutch Trowels but for Summer 2023 we are exploring some of the other shapes.
This is the Flowerbed Trowel and as the name implies its shape has been designed to help when planting in tight areas. The blade is 16cm long, but it tapered along its length (7 cm at its widest.). It also has a pronounced radius meaning it can not only move a significant amount of material but is also good at digging plug holes. Also useful for working in pots as its unlikely to damage the sides of the pot.
This is the long handle version and has a 22cm Cherry handle. If you'd like the standard handle version you can find it here.
Hand forged by Sneeboer in the Netherlands, who have been making and developing garden tools since 1913. Now in the hands of 5th generation family members, Sneeboer use stainless steel to craft the ultimate tools for gardeners. Their tools are the anthesis of the cheap throw away culture. Built to last a lifetime and to be maintain in order to continue to perform like new.
As this item is hand forged please expect to see some hammer marks and black coke marks on the surface. These add to the unique character of each tool and do not affect the durability or quality of the tool in anyway.
