simon craigie -
I'm using this for at the moment where I can - obviously I'd like if their where various options - i.e - length of prongs and width being wider, How ever I use it and it works well for digging, but is different from my other forks that I had before. I'm hoping in time, it will find it's own shape and be nicer and nicer to use over the years. I think tools need to be broken in!

Ich finde die Grabgabel einfach genial zum Garten lockern. Sie rutsch wunderbar leicht in die Erde. Für mich reicht die Tiefe der Zinken, da ich ja nur lockern will. Nachher noch ein kurzen Durchgang mit dem Merak und das Pflanzbeet ist bereit.

Ich habe lange überlegt ob ich diese Investition wagen soll. Habe im Herbst dann die Bestellung aufgegeben. 1 Tag später war die Grabgabel vor meiner Haustür! Habe inzwischen viel damit gearbeitet und mit Begeisterung, die wirklich erstaunlich guten Materialeigenschaften erprobt. Die Zinken sind sehr stabil, sie gehen so leicht in den Boden, dass man glauben könnte die Erde sei so weich. Ich kann die Grabgabel nur weiter emfpehlen.

Leider sehr kurze Zinken ,umgraben,oder etwa Unkrautausgraben macht damit nicht wirklich Sinn.

How much is 5 plus 10?

For breaking up the soil without moving huge clods of earth, lifting potatoes or carrying light fibrous materials and manure, a border fork is the preferred tool for many gardeners. (Although for dividing clumps of perennials, another common use for this tool, we find our spades are sharp enough for the job)

Since the launch of  this has been the single most requested addition to the range.

Why Copper Garden Tools?

  • Copper gardening tools enrich the soils with coppertrace elements and thereby provide plants with essential nutrients
  • They are hardwearing and will last for years
  • Stay free of rust  – but age with a graceful bronze patina, perfect for the coastal gardener
  • They have sharp edges
  • They have an incomparably longer lifespan than devices from iron
  • Viktor Schauberger came to the assessment that cultivating the soil with copper implements would be more beneficial to the Earth and lead to healthier plants. In his writings, he listed several reasons for this.
  • 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
  • Copper 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)
  • Production experience since 20 years. Quality confirmed by enthusiastic gardeners.
