Welcome

We 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

The metal is known to deter slugs and snails

They slice into the soil and come out clean

 

The tools are hand-made in the EU by PKS Bronze. The tool heads are made of solid bronze and the handles are from responsibly-sourced European hardwoods – ash, beech and lime.

Although they may look like works of art, these are hardworking tools, designed for strength not looks. So the tuza mattockbrazing is less smooth than for a sculpture, for example, and there may be marks on the blade which will not detract from the working of the tool.

We also supply Haws copper watering cans and brass plant misters, and our own range of English-made hemp/cotton garden gear, designed with our tools in mind.


Our Policy

We aim to run our business along ethical guidelines causing as little disturbance to the planet as possible.

We use recycled cardboard sourced from local businesses for our packaging. We use as little plastic as possible.

We bank with the Co-operative Bank.

Our telephone account is with the Phone Co-op.

Our guarantee. These are long-lasting tools, which should outlast most of us. However, if for any reason you are unhappy with your tool, we offer a no-quibble 25-year guarantee. We will refund or replace an unused tool. We will also repair or replace a faulty tool (and will refund the UK return postage if it is less than a year old). Of course, this excludes normal wear and tear. The wooden handles and shafts are guaranteed for two years (and we supply replacement handles and shafts) For users outside the UK, we will also honour this guarantee but will ask for help with postage costs.

Happy gardening!
