After looking at countless hand gardening tools here, and in Europe and in Asia, it's so nice to have finally found a design that is truly unique and that really works so well.

This Dutch maker produces three hand forged variations based on the same basic design (wood handle each 10 to 11" long) - with 3 and 5 forged steel tines. The two Handclaw tools are very different in size and are great for digging and pulling loose soil toward you. The 5-Tine Cultivator excels at pushing soil around - shaping and smoothing.

We're not suggesting that you've got to have all three, but each is sufficiently different that it's bound to be helpful to have access to all of them. But at least get one to enjoy it. These are all highly recommended.
About DeWit
DeWit tools are a direct connection to the time when the best tools often came from the village blacksmith. Innovated and evolved from experience and made to last forever, a DeWit-made tool represents the closest possible connection between the tool maker and the tool user to be found in today’s global market. Willem de Wit opened his blacksmith shop in Kornhorn, a small village in northern Holland, in 1898. He did all the things a country village blacksmith did back then – he was a farrier, repaired kettles and sold bicycles. When his sons joined him the business grew, making tools for agriculture. A DeWit tool came to be known to combine good design, skilled craftsmanship and the very best materials, and soon their spades and hoes were in demand all over Holland. The 4th generation of the de Wit family today runs the company by the same principles and standards. Skilled hand forging may be augmented with modern techniques and equipment where appropriate, but the essential connection between the designer/maker and the user endures – only now the de Wits listen to gardeners and farmers from all over the world. And their continued insistence on only the best materials can be readily appreciated in the use of FSC-certified ash handles and Swedish boron steel – the same steel used on a popular brand of bulldozer blades!

  • Tines

    Zapper, 9/26/2016 Great well-made product. But I do wish that the tines were longer by at least an inch.
  • Sturdy

    BJ SCHULTZ , 5/13/2016 Great products. Makes easy work of planting. Sturdy construction.
  • 3 Tine Handclaw

    Dilana Leslie, 8/10/2015 I have an very old handclaw with very thin tines and works perfectly. I have been looking for another to keep in my garden shed to use in the veggie garden. this one is the closest i have every seen. I have problems with arthritis in my hands and shoulder and the thin tines are the only ones i can use. thanks. My old tines are still better, being very thin, but yours work quite well.
  • Quality

    Daniel Kunsman, 8/22/2014 Great quality, great to have. Makes weeding a much simpler task.
  • A Serious Piece of Equipment

    Philip, 7/31/2013 The Cultivator is, like the trowels and other tools made by the same company, a well balanced, rock-solid tool that looks like it might last almost forever. I like the angled tines with V-shaped point pattern, but wish that the spikes were designed with a bit more length, to work granular plant foods a little deeper into the soil.
  • Better Than a Chicken

    Linda, 4/22/2012 This tool has a lovely feel in the hand and works much faster than a herd of chickens.
  • Great Quality

    Ben, 7/6/2011 I usually like to feel a gardening tool before I buy it, but I gave this one a shot. I'm glad I did. It is made exceptionally well. It's like a hand-held rototiller.
  • Surprisingly Effective

    Dean Mcdowell, 5/14/2011 3-tine hand claw agitates an amazing amount of soil around its tines.
