Forks: small size

Along with their companion small (border) spades these are the tools for flower border work. In my professional role as a gardener they are one of my most commonly used tools. When you look closely it is clear that these tools have been made with an attention to detail which is often missing in their modern counterparts. Carefully hardened and tempered to have strength with elasticity, the tines are usually thicker at the top, gradually thinning down to the point where they enter the soil. Handles are usually made of well seasoned smooth ash which is natural shock absorber. These qualities, along with a nice balance and feel makes them a pleasure to use. Is it any wonder these lovely old tools have often been passed down the generations! The photos include a tape measure to give the dimensions and overall length of the item.
