    Default Copper Garden Trowel and Fork

    does anyone else have the beautiful copper trowel and fork from a company called implementations? i absolutely love mine as they cut through soil so easily - good for someone with RSI in wrists. i gave one to a friend who can't live without hers now! anyone know why they don't offer a full sized fork, only a spade?

    Yes I have these and love them - spoke to the makers about a garden fork but their product designer is concerned that the tines won't be strong enough. but they are working on it. My own steel fork has just broken so I have to replace it.

    Copper looks nice but it is too soft...

    Have been looking online for copper gardening tools. Implementations now does a garden fork but at over 100 I'm afraid they will have to keep it.

    I have the trowel and today bought the hoe and nunki weeder. They are effortless to use and so light in comparison to other makes. The quality of the bronze heads is beyond anything you can find in the shops. I am smitten as they do their job and more besides!

    I must admit they do look nice, it's a shame that they're made overseas - I was thinking of buying bulldog tools for the very reason they're made here. But they are tempting!
