Handmade in Austria by PKS, this copper and beechwood trowel has a wide, shallow scoop, making it a practical, all-around tool for weeding, planting, and transplanting. Copper improves soil and plant health by increasing water retention and deterring slugs and snails. Compared to iron and steel, naturally rust-proof copper also reduces friction with the soil, making the curved blade slice into soil with a smooth, controlled action. Each trowel arrives in a custom, gift-ready box packed with natural aspen shavings.
Famed for knife-making since the 1400’s, the village of Nontron is home to France’s oldest continuously-operating cutlery forge.

Blades are forged from 440 stainless steel for excellent edge retention. This high-carbon material reaches Rockwell 58 hardness, making each knife an everlasting gift or practical heirloom.
