Special features of PKS copper gardening tools

  •  PKS gardening tools enrich the soils with coppertrace elements and thereby provide plants with essential nutrients
  • The design of PKS garden tools makes them especially light and effortless to use
  • They have sharp edges
  • Stay free of rust (or develop verdigris)* – but age with a graceful bronze patina, perfect for the coastal gardener
  • They have an incomparably longer lifespan than devices from iron
  • Minute amounts of copper create the conditions for beneficial micro-organisms
  • Penetrate the soil easily -low coefficient of friction- less tendency for clay to cling to the tool 
  • Bronze is not magnetic - so does not disrupt the electrical fields in the soil
  • Can be kept sharp with a whetstone, file or by peening (hammering the edge against a steel anvil)
  • They are hardwearing and will last for years
  • They are a pleasure to own and use

 * Verdigris -  basic copper acetate, formed as minute pale green or bright blue crystals by the action of acetic acid on copper or brass - should not be confused with patina. The green patina often found on copper roofs is often called verdigris, but this is wrong. Verdigris is formed from the reaction between copper and acetic acid, not with water. Verdigris cannot form on the garden tools in the absence of acetic acid.
