Leave it to the Dutch to create a trusty Tulip Trowel—from the Netherlands firm DeWit, a company that has been making hand-forged garden tools since 1898. The company recently added the Tulip Trowel to the collection, and with three sharpened points it can cut through the thickest of roots. Check out the rest of Dewit’s offerings from Terrain:

Above: The collection of DeWit Gardening Tools on offer at Terrain. The ash handled tools are made from Boron steel that is burnished to protect and create a patina.

Above: Aside from the sharpened points, the DeWit Tulip Trowel’s deep-dished blade is great for scooping and is useful for planting and potting plants; $42 from Terrain.

Above L: The DeWit Cultivator has five tines instead of the usual three; $28. Above R: The lightweight DeWit Perennial Spade; $38.
