Developed in collaboration with Europe's largest conservation charity, these tools have been made using traditional manufacturing techniques little used today. The steel is forged, a process which aligns the grain of the metal for improved strength; the spade and fork are solid socket designs, meaning the tines, head and socket are forged from a single piece of steel, with no welds.
