Copper Tools

Copper Tools

"The use of copper implements in agriculture results in a distinct improvement in the quality and yield of field fruits."  This was the result of experimental work in the 1950s by the Austrian biologist Viktor Schauberger and he attributed this to particles of copper left behind by gardening tools and agricultural machines. He  was not the first to recognise this. Highly developed past civilisations such as Imperial China consistently renounced the use of iron when working the soil. Our Copper Tools are manufactured by the small Austrian company PKS, using copper alloy (copper+tin=bronze). Very small amounts of copper rub off during use and are absorbed by the soil. All tools are cold forged by hand. Copper alloy is considerably lighter than iron. This together with lime wood handles results in very light and handy tools. (Made in Europe)

Why Copper Garden Tools?
Copper gardening tools enrich the soils with coppertrace elements and thereby provide plants with essential nutrients. They are hardwearing and will last for years.
Copper tools stay free of rust  – but age with a graceful bronze patina, perfect for the coastal gardener and they have a longer lifespan than tools made from iron.
Viktor Schauberger came to the assessment that cultivating the soil with copper implements would be more beneficial to the Earth and lead to healthier plants. In his writings, he listed several reasons for this such as : Minute amounts of copper create the conditions for beneficial micro-organisms. Slugs do not like copper. Copper is not magnetic - so does not disrupt the electrical fields in the soil. Copper tools can be kept sharp with a whetstone, file or by peening (hammering the edge against a steel anvil).
