Japanese Hand Trowel, made by hand in Tsubame-Sanjo, Japan

A hand trowel made by blacksmiths specialising only in gardening tools. For over 400 years the area has been known for its blacksmithing traditions. Modern companies trace their roots back to the first few blacksmiths who turned this area into a major blacksmithing community in Japan.

It is a simple design using high carbon steel and natural wood. It is very effective to use and easy to handle.

Widely used for transplanting flowers, planting seeds, digging up soil and cutting the roots of weeds. The tip is sharpened and helps you dig up soil very comfortably.

Information:

  • Made in Japan
  • Material: High carbon steel and natural wood.

Care:

  1. Always check that the wood and steel part are well attached
  2. Clean with water
  3. Do not touch the sharpened edge directly with bare hands
  4. Apply anti rust oil to further prevent corrosion 
  5. Wrap in a dry cloth if you know you will not use it for weeks
  6. Keep away from wind, rain and direct sunlight

Man Made

Open tab

All our products are made by artisans in Suwada Open Factory, in Niigata, Japan. The factory is open to the public without reservations to ensure transparency for all our claims.

In rare cases we collaborate with local companies to promote a product that we think you will love. In those cases we ensure that the companies adhere 100% to our highest standards of employee work conditions and traditional methods for crafting goods.

Once an object is made in Suwada, it is taken through extensive testing to ensure quality and durability. We hold the highest quality control standards possible, checking all items, one by one.

Craftsmanship is at the core of our model, and we make sure our craftspeople have great lives, high salaries and are able to expand their knowledge in their field when they wish to do so. This approach of continuous learning has pushed traditional crafts to a whole new level, and has permitted Suwada to train a new generation of men and women in Japanese metal crafts. We absolutely oppose machine made goods that can be made better by hand, and poor working conditions that treat people as if they are product making machines.

Our prices reflect humanist ideals. When you buy Suwada, you buy quality. You support vibrant communities of craftspeople, who design and make useful and beautiful objects, that will improve your everyday life, and carry a little of their maker's spirit in them. When you buy Suwada, you reaffirm all humanist values and virtues, and you chose unique over common.
