Fisher Blacksmithing Hand Rake
Style No. 78909355
Each Fisher Blacksmithing heritage garden tool is hand-forged in Tuli Fisher's Bozeman, Montana workshop. This elegant rake is great for breaking up dirt and attacking rhizomeous weeds. One of Fisher's original three tools, he's built this rake completely by hand from start to finish for 17 years. The carefully-bent side tines flare slightly below the ferrule creating a beautiful, fleur de lis image. The solid steel rivets are set horizontally to the direction of pressure providing additional stability for the rake. The tines of the rake are great for working with ornamental grasses and other weeds that have shallow, rhizomes or runner-type growth. All tools are made by hand using traditional blacksmithing techniques. The steel patina is a result of the heat from the forging process and varies from piece to piece. Each handle is made of black walnut and turned on a wood lathe.
Care tips: Rinse and clean the tool with water and a stiff brush. Wipe dry and store inside. Wipe down both the steel and handle with linseed oil a couple times every year.
