Description

Nunki is an ingenious weeding tool. It has a beech handle and a sharp curved bronze blade, which allows the gardener to scuffle the soil and loosen weed roots in a simple action. The hooped blade allows the gardener to remove mat-forming weeds such as speedwell and chickweed from close to established plants without damaging them. The sharp edges enable the gardener to tidy up between rows of plants in a swift, sweeping action.

    Some earlier reviews:

    “I have just received the Nunkie weeder. It is indeed an ingenious device! It is not only a weeder it cultivates as well.
    It is especially useful for people like me who have cranky wrists and find it painful to lever hand forks and trowels for weeding on heavy soil.”
    Norman Christie, by email

    “The Nunki Weeder is perfect for dealing with annual weeds between rows of veg, without disturbing the veg.”
    Linda Crags

    “I am setting up an eco friendly gardening business in Lancaster, UK and I have decided to use copper tools for my work. I have already bought a Nuki Weeder and it is the best thing I have ever used in the garden!”
    Anna Friewald

    “Easy tool for the weeder on their knees. With this beauty I weeded a thirty foot raspberry bed in less than thirty minutes. Not bad going is it? Very sharp tool!”
    Andrea, South Derbyshire

    “Yep I use this all the time its brilliant! It doesnt look much but it is my most used tool for shifting weeds between plants. Leaves the soil all crumbly after. Brilliant between my onions.”
    April & Ed, SE London

    “Used it for first time on the gloriously sunny weekend, what a joy. So quick, cleared all the surface weeds on my veg plot in no time. Will certainly recommend it to my gardening friends.”
    Sue Gough

    “I have recently bought several of your tools and am delighted with them – they are not only well designed and efficient but beautiful and very satisfying to use – as a gardener, aesthetics are important and your tools are the best I have ever used. One question – how do I keep them sharp – especially the hoes and the Nunkie Weeder (which by the way is an excellent device and a joy to use).”

    Nicky Marshall, UK

    And here was our answer to her question:

    The tools can be sharpened with an ordinary knife sharpener or sharpening stone. The only difference compared to sharpening a steel blade is that we advise you move the sharpener across the blade at a slow pace, slower than you would when sharpening a steel knife.

    When I took on my allotment earlier this year I decided to use a deep bed system with the beds sixteen feet long and four wide. I have found that I can easily use this device to hoe between plants that are quite close together. Yes, I have to bend over for quite a while as I have numerous beds but I find that for close, delicate work this little hand hoe is ideal.

    This is my favourite gardening tool. I have one on my allotment and one for my garden. The only problem is that it camouflages itself and I can spend ages trying to find it again. A bit of coloured string round the handle helps.

    I love this so much I have given it to several of my gardening friends as presents and have 2 in case I inadvertently lose mine. I use it for weeding the whole time and it’s my favourite tool, followed closely by the narrow trowel.

    Brilliant tool. Just moved into a new home full of weeds and this simply made the job so much easier, it”s a dream to use. As always the tool feels so nice to use, but the nunki turns over the soil to a good depth and that is a real benefit. This is the best gamrden tool I have ever had, full marks.
