Outdoors: PKS Copper Gardening Tools

Sarah Lonsdale August 26, 2011

Spotted on Terrain’s web site: handmade Copper Garden Tools from Austrian company PKS. In addition to good looks, it turns out that copper has some merits worth noting: it increases water retention thereby improving the soil, and since it is naturally rust proof, it also reduces friction with the soil, making it easier to garden. Who knew?

Above: Orion Long Handled Spade with copper head and turned lime wood handle
; $258.

Above: Perseus Long Handled Rake with copper head and turned lime wood handle; $198.

Above: The Lyra Claw Cultivator with copper prongs rarely needs sharpening; it’s $70.

Above: The Vega Hand Fork is $58.
