For Many Springtimes: New Oregon-Made Garden Tools
Posted on 11 May 2016
Portlanders like us cherish the fleeting bright moments to plow the earth and play in the sun. Like all others in the country and throughout the world, we're starting to enjoy longer days, warmer winds, and a long list of to-do's and to-see's, and we're acting on all our sun-inspired whimsies and wishes.
A long list of spring apparel and gear helps us make it happen, and some classic favorites and a few new hand-forged, Oregon-made garden tools are in the lineup.
We took out the new Oregon-made garden tools last week for some digging and dirt disturbing, and we're impressed by the weight and feel in hand, the strength of the steel, and, of course, the simple, hand-made, classic style.
These new tools come from the fires of Western Oregon, hand-forged in old school fashion over an anvil. A trowel, a 3-tine cultivator, and a hand hoe make up our series of essential tools. All of them are built from high quality steel and hickory. As they're made the old fashioned way, these ones are yours and your loved ones for many lifetimes, and the handles will smooth beautifully with continued use.
Dig into all our garden gear, including some Hand-Eye classics, here.
Now go answer this fine weather's call and get to work (and play).
