We first came across Sneeboer when looking for a more robust full size garden digging fork. So I guess its been a little unusual that this is the first time we've stocked one of their hand weeding forks. That's because its not a tool that we have used a great deal in our garden. I think our weeds get too large before we tackle them... and then we need to use a full size fork.
However, its probably the tool we've been asked to stock the most when we've been at garden shows so we thought it was time that we stocked one, and gave it a try in our garden as well.
As with all Sneeboer tools this weeding fork is much more robust and sturdy than most garden tools you find. The ends of each tine have been flattened to allow you to get under the roots of a weed without much damage. Suitable for a variety of soil types.
The head is 12 cm long and 7 cm wide. This is the long handled Cherry version with a 22cm long handle. If you are looking for the standard length handle 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.
