Burgon & Ball Steel & Brass Beechwood Weeder
An unique three-pronged weeder is especially good at tackling those devilish weeds that re-grow if you leave in any of the roots. Simply hold the weed in one hand, submerge the prongs around the roots of the plant and twist to remove the offending intruder and its roots. Its dimensions are 24,5 cm long x 2,5 cm wide.
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.
