Three Tine Hand Cultivator
Three Tine Hand Cultivator
Also known as a "Three Prong Cultivator," this elegant hand garden tool is great for loosening your soil, upsetting weed seedlings, and attacking rhizomeous weeds! It doubles as a back scratcher.
Tuli writes, "I build this lovely artistic interpretation of a hand rake completely by hand from start to finish. The carefully bent side tines flare slightly below the ferrule creating a beautiful, fleur-de-lis image. The solid steel rivets are set horizontally to the direction of pressure providing additional stability for the rake. The tines are great for working with grasses and other weeds that have shallow, rhizomes or runner-type growth. We always joke with customers that it doubles as a back scratcher, but jokes aside we frequently use it for one ourselves!"
Dimensions are approximately twelve inches long by five inches wide.
