WelcomeWe started using these tools in our own garden and allotment in 2001 and immediately recognised their unique quality. Hand-made from natural materials and practical as well as beautiful, they also make unusual gardening gifts.
About the tools
The tool heads are made of solid bronze (copper with a little bit of tin). Other parts are pure copper, brass and other copper alloys.
- They don't rust
- They have sharp edges
- They are hardwearing and will last for years
- Copper is known to deter slugs and snails
- They slice into the soil and come out clean
The tools are hand-made in Austria and Hungary by PKS Bronze. The company is based in Austria and the smithy is just over the border in Hungary. The tool heads are made of solid bronze and the handles are from European hardwoods - ash, beech and lime. Our tools are designed for working in cultivated soil. The tool heads carry a no-quibble, 25-year guarantee (excluding normal wear and tear) and the handles have a two-year guarantee.
