Used by gardeners to aerate dirt, remove weeds and prepare soil for planting, a cultivator is an essential tool for creating a healthy and welcoming seedbed. Hand-forged by a father-and-son team in Japan’s Niigata Prefecture, this claw-tined soil-tiller is designed to take the stress out of yard work and help to create and maintain a thriving garden.
Joy Tip If you have a small compost pile – and don’t have a big pitchfork – use a cultivator to mix up your green and brown materials to ensure your pile is receiving enough oxygen.

Remove leaf resin with water. Wipe dry, oil and store in a dry place.
To sharpen, use a sharpening stone. New tools won’t need sharpening for some time, but with regular use over time they will require occasional sharpening.
Avoid cutting wire, metal, stone, plastic or any other hard material. Even bamboo fibers and some very hard woods – especially knots, burrs and dead wood – can damage steel edges. Do not twist or apply uneven pressure. Try to cut branches diagonally, not straight across.
