About De Wit tools
The Dutch are renowned for making the world’s finest garden tools, and De Wit is the most respected name of all. Founded in 1898, the family-owned toolmaker combines old-fashioned quality and craftsmanship with innovative design to create superior tools that last a lifetime.
Every tool is hand-forged in the Netherlands from tough boron steel - shaped, sharpened and burnished for durability, giving it the same blackened patina as traditional Edwardian tools. Each is fitted with an FSC-certified solid ash handle for ultimate strength and shock resistance, oiled to provide first-class protection against the elements.
All De Wit tools come with a lifetime guarantee against manufacturing defects, making them a truly once in a lifetime purchase.
