Still looking for decent gardening tools? This three-piece set is hard to beat. It’s made by Saboten, a Japanese company that has been manufacturing the designs for over 60 years. Each piece is one-piece-stamped from steel, and then hand-dipped in bright orange-red so you can find them easily in the garden.
The set includes a wide trowel, a transplanter (for precision), and a cultivator to aerate soil and remove weeds.
The Saboten Gardening Tools have recently been rewarded the Good Design Long Life Design Award.
