Bronze Castor Trowel
Hand crafted by Austrian coppersmiths, the tool heads are made of solid bronze and the handles turned from responsibly sourced European hardwoods; ash, beech and lime.
The Castor with its sharp, curved blade is a design classic and a favourite of our founder, Dean. With its scooped shaped and sporting a beech handle we find it is the most practical trowel for bulb planting and general weeding and planting.
These beautifully crafted bronze tools are far superior to steel:
• Don’t rust
• Sharp edged which can be re sharpened
• Hardwearing, out lasting steel tools by years
• Bronze is known to deter slugs and snails
• Slice into the soil and come out clean
We started using these beautiful garden tools in 2013 and immediately recognised their unique quality. Hand-made from natural materials, practical as well as beautiful, they make perfect gardening gifts.
These tools are works of art and are hardworking tools, designed for strength so the brazing is a little less smooth than for a sculpture, for example. There may be marks on the blade which will not detract from the working of the tool.
Length: 30.5cm including handle.
Blade: 16.5cm long, maximum width 8.5cm.
If you have smaller hands we would highly recommend the Mira trowel.
