Waxed FSC Beechwood handle, brass ferrule and stainless steel head.
This tool is produced by Burgon & Ball and designed by Sophie Conran. Burgon & Ball began manufacturing in 1730 here in the industrial heartland of Sheffield and for 280 years they have produced some of the finest sheep shears and cutting tools in the world. The secret behind this lies with the hardness of the metal - all Burgon & Ball edge tools are made from high-carbon steel, heat treated to the optimum hardness (measured in Rockwell values) for that tool. Sophie Conran believes that tools should be functional and beautiful, and make each job a pleasure. One of the problems when gardening is that women hands are generally too small for standard tools. The Sophie Conran designs specifically address this issue and will add to the joy of gardening.
