Red Pig Garden Tools
Company Description:We make hand-forged, artisan garden tools the old fashioned way using steel, fire, anvil, and a blacksmith's skill and strength. Since 1989, we have been designing, making, and selling artisanal tools to homeowners, gardening enthusiasts, and small farmers. Whether it is a trowel that doesn't break, a heavy duty tool to remove invasive blackberries, or any of 30 different weeding hoes, our craftsmanship will stand out. We make our tools in Oregon in our own workshop, with handles turned for us in Arkansas and Tennessee from hickory or ash. We also regularly take on custom work from tool reproductions to decorative architectural pieces. If we don't make a tool, we likely have high quality version made by someone else, including hand pruners, garden scissors, and a wide range of mainly Japanese tools to make sure we can offer a tool for every task in the garden.
Our first time at the NW Flower and Garden Festival, most of the tools we make will be new to visitors. Check out a couple of our more unique trowels - a planting trowel and a Red Pig hori hori trowel.
