Hand-forged in Oregon by blacksmith Bob Denman, consider this transplant trowel an instant heirloom that makes transplanting plants a breeze.
The deeply cupped blade that is sharpened all the way up both sides makes it useful for quickly coring a hole for bedding plants. Unlike most transplant trowels, Red Pig comes without depth markings on the blade surface.
Why? Because Bob has never seen anyone use the depth markings on trowels that have them. “Most gardeners can tell one inch from two and your bulbs won’t croak if you bury them a half or quarter-inch too deep or shallow.”
Like all Red Pig trowels, this transplant trowel is built for a lifetime or two of service.
Bob and Rita Denman have been crafting hand-forged garden tools with the Red Pig label for over 15 years that are considered some of the best in the country. Working in a barn in Boring, Oregon Bob mans the blacksmith shop and Rita runs their charming garden store in front.
Red Pig tools are built to last a lifetime. Think of a tool that you would love to have or used to have, but can’t find anymore, and Bob’s the guy that will fashion it for you.
