Castor Trowel


The Castor trowel is a convenient hand trowel with a beech handle and pointed, heart-shaped bronze blade.

The tool head is made of solid bronze (copper with a little bit of tin). Other parts are pure copper, brass and other copper alloys.

The metal is known to deter slugs and snails.

They don’t rust and they have sharp edges

They are hardwearing and will last for years.

They slice into the soil and come out clean

The tools are hand made of solid bronze and the handles are from responsibly-sourced European hardwoods – ash, beech and lime.

Although they may look like works of art, these are hardworking tools, designed for strength not looks.
