The New Bronze Age 

                                                          

  • Copper doesn't rust

  • Copper is known to deter slugs and snails

  • The tools are hard-wearing and will last for years

  • Our tools have sharp edges, and they stay sharp

  • Copper causes less friction than iron or steel, so the soil slides off our tools

 

About the tools

Our tools are hand-made in Austria by craftsman coppersmiths. The blades are made of bronze, an alloy of copper and tin, and then hand-beaten to harden them. Other parts are made of brass and other copper alloys. The staffs are made of European hardwoods - ash, beech and lime. The longer tools are European length - longer than we are used to in Britain, allowing a comfortable, upright working posture. The resulting tools are hardwearing, practical and beautiful.

About this site

 

We sell the tools at garden shows and other events around the U.K. To check if we will be at an event near you, have a look at our Events Diary.

On the Viktor Schauberger page, you can find out about the Austrian inventor whose work inspired the development of our tools, and how to find out more about his life and work.

As copper is not the usual choice of metal for garden implements you may wish to read more about it on the Copper page.

The Results page contains a sample of the comments from our feedback folder. It also has some extracts from our garden diary of 2001, our first year of using the tools.

One startling result that we found, was that plants cultivated with our tools are less attractive to slugs and snails. We have investigated what may be the reason for this on the Slugs and Snails page
