In The Art of Fine Tools, author Sandor Nagyszalanczy writes, “A well-made tool is a thing of beauty that’s a pleasure to use. But to enjoy a fine tool, one doesn’t have to raise a shaving or kick up a cloud of sawdust. Sometimes, it’s enough just to sit back and gaze with admiration.”
And that could be a big danger to your garden if you purchase a couple of these handmade garden tools from Fisher Blacksmithing: You might want to just sit and admire them instead of getting down and dirty in the soil.
Tuli Fisher has been forging hand tools and studying traditional toolmaking since 1999, and works as a fulltime blacksmith in Bozeman, Montana. In 2003, he began repairing the tools of a local farmer, which grew into a desire to make better garden tools, and he’s now turning out beautiful handmade trowels and weeders and handrakes.
These are true heirloom quality garden tools, with both style and longevity built right into them. I don’t think it’s too much of a stretch to say that your kids will start fighting over them long before you’re dead.
