For breaking up 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 and the Antares fork is just the job. The head is of high-grade work-hardened bronze, designed to stand up the the stresses that any border fork is subjected to. The shaft is steam-bent ash, with a beech T-handle.
PKS bronze tool heads are hand made of solid bronze (copper with a little bit of tin) by a smithy in Hungary. The handles are from European hardwoods: ash, beech and lime.
Although they may look like works of art, these are hardworking tools, designed for strength not looks.The tool heads carry a no-quibble, 25-year guarantee (excluding normal wear and tear) and the handles have a two-year guarantee. The advantages are: they don’t rust; they have sharp edges; they are hardwearing and will last for years; the metal is known to deter slugs and snails; they slice into the soil and come out clean.
