Our Gardener’s Lifetime Trowel is hand-forged in Holland from the finest high-carbon Swedish boron steel. Unlike flimsy tools that are stamped from thin stainless steel, this trowel 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 handle is made of sustainably grown European ash hardwood. Gardener’s Lifetime Tools are handmade for us by a fourth-generation, family-owned business that has been crafting fine gardening tools for more than a century.

Comments about : Gardener's Lifetime Trowel:
Very well made. Haven't used it much but expect it will stand up to digging in most soil. Only concern is it is heavier than my normal trowel and not sure if that is going to be a problem when I plant bulbs and use it for an extended period of time.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have only used this a couple of weeks. So far, it is working great. The wooden handle is better than the other trowel I have that has a plastic handle.

Gift for a Gardener
By Gardener Pat
I bought this for my daughter in law as a birthday gift. She told me she had broken several trowels and was looking for a quality product. She is happy with the result!

Exactly what I was looking for
from Denver, CO
Perfect for use in my raised beds and in my loose soil beds. Have not, and will not, use it in thick clay soils.

Truly a lifetime tool. I love it!
from Springfield SD
I was tired of hand trowels that would bend and eventually break. In the photo, this tool appeared to be quite heavy duty. I was not disappointed. If only someone would come up with a way to keep it from getting lost.

I bought this as a gift for new-homeowners who have several small garden areas. A great, sturdy and practical gift that they truly appreciated.

You will not be disappointed
from Savage, Minnesota
This trowel is well made with attention to detail and finish. The ash handle is comfortable and smoothly turned. If you are able to bend or break this blade then you have abused the tool! I liked it so much I ordered the matching cultivator.
from Holland, MI
It's almost too pretty to use on my dirty garden jobs! I will be sure to take better care of it, like making sure it is clean from dirt and moisture before I put it away. It's truly beautiful (for a trowel)!

By old creaky gardener
from Windsor, CA
this is truly a trowel for the ages - I had a s imilar one that was about 25 yrs old and still going strong until I inexplicably "lost" it outside (probably on the bottom of the compost heap)- I expect this one to last just as long - (note to self: mention in will)
