CREVICE WEEDER

This crevice weeder is another solid, hand forged garden tool made especially for us by Red Pig Garden Tools. We do not like to weed, but this tool makes it a little less painful. We love using tools made in the USA. And being pig admirers, we love the name!

The most difficult weeding job is to extract plants that take root in the narrow crevices between bricks or in sidewalk cracks. This tool has a thin but strong blade that slips deep into cracks (as deep as 3") and drags the weed out by its roots. The blade is not sharpened and therefore does not cut the roots, leaving them to throw more growth. (Did you know that trees and vines taking root between building blocks are the greatest threat to ancient ruins -- more damaging than acid rain or human vandalism?) We did not know this interesting and valuable fact! The name Red Pig Garden Tools is a registered trademark of R.Z. and R.K. Denman, Boring, Oregon, 97009.

ABOUT THE COMPANY

We are the only blacksmith in the United States specializing in hand forged garden tools for home gardeners, nurserymen, landscapers, and farmers.

We've been producing hand-forged implements for over 15 years. Bob is a tool designer, inventor, and frequent writer on various gardening topics and Rita is your contact in the store and online. We are new to the internet, but have years of experience operating the retail store. We started off in California in the late 1980's, and relocated to Oregon in 2004.

We operate out of a two story barn that Bob built out of the lumber from two 100-year old Oregon barns. The store is fantastic — in the summer it's cool and bright, and in the winter you can warm your feet at the pot belly stove.

We offer more than 1000 items at the store, and have at least 20 different patterns of hoes; steel rakes ranging from 6 tines to 24 tines; one to five-tine cultivators; ball weeders; hand plows; rock picking forks, root hooks; cradle forks for overhead pitching; mangel cutters; weed spuds; wood tine rakes; hot bed weeders and hundreds of other unique or rare implements.

We also offer sharpening of non-power pruning and other edged tools, re-handling, restoration, repair and custom tool making.
