A brief history of hand tools

Hand tools are part of our history having been in use by humans for some 3.3 million years. Starting with the stone age when their function was basically for hammering and cutting. Over time there was the Bronze Age when tools were made by casting alloys like tin and copper making them much sharper and harder than stone tools. Following this the Iron Age which meant that tools became even stronger and more durable, the Romans then developed tools which are quite simular to the ones we use today. Since the Industrial Revolution the manufacture of tools has largely changed from being made by craftsmen to being produced (mainly as cheaply as possible) often in huge volumes in factories right across the world.  We are especially pleased to be an official UK dealer for Sneeboer, one of the few remaining quality craftsman made tool makers that have been applying their trade for over 100 years. Using traditional methods combined with the latest innovations these garden tools are genuinely the best we have seen.

Gardeners love handmade tools by Sneeboer and for good reason too

First let’s look at the alternatives. We’ve all experienced the stamped sheet metal garden tools, many of which hardly lasting because they aren't built for the job. Bending being a real issue when the going gets a little tough, the welds breaking down because they are weak points, handles falling off in time, plastic used in some parts and often for handles etc.  Made for Creeper & Knotweed at the Sneeboer tool forge in the North Netherlands our range of high quality Sneeboer tools have the purpose to be functional whilst being robust and all are designed to be a good fit to use. Each head is largely traditionally forged from a (substantial) single piece of stainless steel in a way that helps it to be very hard wearing, durable and rust free. The handles are created in ash or cherry wood from sustainably certified sources, treated simply with linseed oil they will provide a fitting service for years to come.

More economical & better for the planet

When you consider how long the tools last, it works out more economical in the long run to buy these tools, whilst also supporting the policy of ‘Buy Less - Buy Better’ which has to be more beneficial for us and for the planet. We believe these tools make gardening a real pleasure, we use them ourselves as gardeners and they are truly exceptional, they make the gardening jobs so much easier and anyone that has used one will surely testify to this. We understand for example that Monty Don, Adam Frost, Piet Oudolf and many other gardeners and garden designers enjoy using these tools. We know you will too.
