Orion Copper Spade
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.
