IMPLEMENTATIONS - copper garden tools

About the tools  -  these are handmade in Austria by craftsman coppersmiths.  The blades are made of bronze, an alloy of copper and a small amount of tin, and then hand-beaten to harden them.  The staffs are made of European hardwoods  -  ash, beech and lime.  The resulting tools are hardwearing, practical and beautiful.

Users feel that the tools are well designed and keep their sharp edges.  They notice that the soil slides easily off our tools.  More and more people have noticed reduced slug and snail damage after using the tools.
