Our Gardener’s Lifetime Cultivator is hand-forged in Holland from the finest high-carbon Swedish boron steel. Unlike flimsy tools that are stamped from thin stainless steel, this cultivator is ready for a lifetime of use by serious gardeners. To give it extra strength and durability, a 4" metal tang extends into the handle, which is securely fastened with a welded socket. The hardwood handle is made of sustainably grown European ash. Gardener’s Lifetime Tools are handmade for us by a fourth-generation, Dutch family-owned business that has been crafting fine gardening tools for more than a century.
