Serious gardeners acquire an appreciation for finely crafted tools. Most of us have one or two personal favorites that they would never be without. Fisher's handcrafted pieces are just such tools.
In this era of low quality products that are mass produced in the factories of developing countries, cheaply priced and treated as disposable, these "iron and wood" garden tools buck this trend. They are handcrafted in an effort to preserve and to promote the traditional craft of blacksmithing utilizing natural materials and made right here in the United States.
By purchasing from our web site, you are not only acting as a patron to a true artisan, you are also helping to support the seed variety preservation mission of the Victory Seed Company.
Hand crafted from natural materials in Bozeman, Montana by a real blacksmith, Tuli Fisher's traditional garden tool collection provides gardeners with high quality tools built to last a lifetime.
Each and every tool is individually constructed using traditional blacksmithing techniques; forged with fire, hammer and anvil, hardened in water, and finished by hand.
The designs for these tools are based on functional, time-tested implements found in traditional agricultural communities. It is easy to see that their forms are nature inspired as well. The weight and strength of the tools provide increased capability in working soil, while the hand-turned handled (or natural handles) provide comfort. The tools are finished to protect against the elements and increase their longevity.
All of the traditional gardening tools are shipped directly from the artisan's shop, on a first in, first out basis. Please allow up to two weeks for delivery. Due to the size and weight of these tools, the most economical method for shipping to addresses within the U.S. postal system is by using US Mail Priority Flat Rate. One (1) to six (6) tools can generally fit in one package for this cost.
