Mavis’ 12 Days of Giveaways – Day 3 – 1 Hand-forged Garden Tool Gift Set by Fisher Blacksmithing in Bozeman, Montana
I first discovered Tuli Fisher and his insanely beautiful garden tools at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show in Seattle back in 2014. I remember weaving my way down the aisles of all the wonderful vendor booths and then stopping in my tracks when I spied his tools. I simply had never seen a garden tool as beautiful as the ones he had on display, and picked one up immediately to see how it felt in my hand.
I went home that day with one of his Garden Rakes and when my husband came home that night I showed it to him and even he was impressed with not only the quality of the garden rake, but also agreeing it was worth every penny I had spent on it.
“Each tool is individually built using traditional blacksmithing techniques. Steel is heated to a red glow in the forge and then shaped over the anvil with a hammer. All joinery is done using solid steel rivets. And, each tool is set into its own hand turned handle creating a long-lasting garden tool with no welds. Black Walnut is used for handles. The tight grain of this strong hardwood makes it very durable. Best of all, it just feels good in your hand.”
5 years later… and with a few more of Tuli’s tools in my garden tote, I am still convinced he makes the best garden hand tools on the planet. And I’m not the only one. 😉 Genuine quality products handmade by real humans… How cool is that?

Lora Rosencrans says
Ooo, I would love to use these in my new kitchen herb garden that we are going to put in place in the spring! We just moved into my grandparents home after it sat empty for 5 years.
My first instinct would be to hang these tools somewhere in the solarium because they are works of art. But I would use them in the garden-perfect length for working with when one has to sit on the ground to ‘play’.
I will keep them! They are beautiful and perfect for the new garden in our home.
Heather Smith says
These are stunning! I would keep them and hope they inspire greatness in my little T-town garden next spring.
They are beautiful! I would use them in the new raised beds my husband built for me. I think I would also have to display them somewhere!
Those are beautiful. My kid wants to blacksmith and has taken one class so far and loves it. So I would show them to him and we would use them until he makes me a set someday.
D. Wedinger says
Absolutely beautiful tools. If I win these, I will give them to my partner, Jeff. His retirement endeavor has been to grow plants he sells. I think he would love these handcrafted tools!
These Garden tools are very beautuful. I’n definately keeping them. I’ll use them in my herb garden.
It would be a very hard decision but I would gift them to my sister, an avid gardener. She has a big, beautiful yard and could use these sturdy tools. Happy Sunday!
Toni Terrell says
Oh I would keep them and do a dance!
We just moved to to new house with a lot of garden space, veggie and flower. These are beautiful!
Kathy G says
They would be helpful in tending my deck garden, then look beautiful hanging on my potting bench.
Maarja Shisler says
Oh my goodness, keep them! I would use them in my raised garden boxes behind my shed that my husband built me. My kids like to help me grow tomatoes and green beans each summer.
Kari A. says
First, since I never win anything, I would probably do a happy dance! I’d enjoy using them in my flower beds, that’s for sure! I love how they look!
I would keep the tools and enjoy them all year while gardening. They are stunning!
Love, love love this giveaway! I would keep these tools for myself. Thanks, Mavis!
Keep them and do a happy dance ! Dig in my resting garden because I would have to try them out ASAP.
I would use them in my herb garden!. They are beautiful tools!
Incredible workmanship. I would use them to plant some rose bushes.
These are beautiful! I would keep these, but share with my daughter. We started our first vegetable garden last year and can’t wait for the spring. 🙂
Karen W says
Absolutely works of art! I can use in my little herb garden but also hang for display.
After years of establishing our garden for food production, we are adding floral landscapes to our farm yard. These tools will be a great help!
I would use these to tend to my bulb garden off my patio.
My son is a blacksmith so these are very cool! I don’t know if I would keep them or give them away. A hard decision *think, think, think
Those are so beautiful! I would use them in my raised beds full of garden goodness.
Margery Erckert says
As hard as it would be I would hide them away for 2 years and then give them to my daughter Kat when she graduates from Kansas State. With her degree in parks and rec, along with being an active part of the student farm club these would make the perfect graduation gift.
heidi albers says
Start my garden on our new hobby farm in Wisconsin
Sheila Smith says
I would give them to my sweet husband who had kidney cancer last year but is now cancer free thankfully!
He loves things that are unique and handmade and he loves to garden! Win,win!
I would love this set to use in my garden!
They are lovely. I would display them. They are too cool to store in a tote. And I would use them…such fantastic craftsmanship! What a wonderful gift for one lucky winner!!
nancy grimsley says
My husband and I are artists by profession and I strive to have everything in our home hand made by fellow artists. However I never imagined such tools were even available for our garden. We just purchased 5 acres and hope to move next year. Those tools would be quite the way to start our new garden and yes, we would be doing the happy dance!
Krystal Taylor says
These are awesome! I’d totally keep them for myself.
Sheila Smith says
I would give them to my sweet husband who had kidney cancer last year but is now thankfully cancer free!

These are beautiful! I would keep them for myself.
Cathy E says
If I win? I’d keep on gardening but with a lot more style! Thanks for the chance.
Good luck breaking those tools. They look awesome.
Those are gorgeous! I would gift them to my husband who does all the gardening at our house!
Honestly, I’d probably keep them. I don’t know many gardeners, and these are beautiful and appear top notch quality! Plus, I only have a spade (that has many purposes including scooping chicken poop and cleaning ashes from the stove )
Sarah Studzinski says
oh those beauties would be mine, all mine!
I would use them myself! myself! I transplanted some hosta this year, and had a terrible time breaking them apart and digging up the new dirt. My husband laughed at me and I demonstrated what I had to do to chop them apart. I’m glad I can make him laugh. I don’t have much garden space because I am in an apartment, but I have to have something!
These look amazing! Although They are almost too beautiful to use, I would totally keep them and use them. The ones I have are cheap and flimsy, and these look like the real deal.
I would definitely keep them for myself. My garden is mostly ornamental with a few herbs thrown in. Having such beautiful tools to work with might inspire me to do more.
I would keep them for my gardening! They are so incredibly beautiful.
I would replace my Dollar Tree set and come spring enjoy spending time using them in my herb garden. I would have to make myself stop drooling over how gorgeous they are.
Kristin F says
I would keep them! I am looking for a new trowel after I basically bent and destroyed my trowel this year which was a first for me. I am planning a much larger garden this year and need new tools!
Sandra Smith says
Definitely keeping those gorgeous tools!
Hannah F says
Definitely keep those bad boys. Wow, they’re beautiful.
I will use them for my own garden.
Rebecca Garrett says
I would keep those forever!! I LOVE finding things that are handmade. I’m trying to pair my life down and only own things that I love and that are the best quality.
I’d gift these to my sister Erica. She has a lovely garden and would appreciate the handmade quality.
Tracy Tidwell says
They will be wall art when not being used. They are gorgeous.

I would gift these to my husband as he is the real gardener in our family. These tools are truly works of art1
The holidays is a time of giving! I would gift them to my son who loves to garden.
Kathleen Schwabe says
I have a new raised bed garden space and would love to use this set to keep up with the weeds.
You know the theory that says in order to keep something it must be useful, or beautiful, or make you happy? Well, these tools meet all three criteria for me and would be used 1) to continue the evolution of my container garden, and
2) as artwork. As a complete sucker for thoughtfully designed tools crafted as works of art, especially when created from wood and metal, I would proudly showcase these as homage to those who make the practical, beautiful.
I would keep them! So cool.
Karen Kolb says
I would be keeping them to display as artwork!
Oh my! These are beautiful! I just went to his Etsy shop and saved a bunch of tools. I’d keep this batch for myself and then once I had a chance to use them, buy more as gifts!
Cindy R says
Oh my if I won these…they would hold a place of honor in my potting shed (but I would definitely use them too!)
Sandi Fleury says
Oooh, awesome!! I will definitely keep and use them!! I have a vintage rake head mounted that I hang my vintage hand tools on. I use old leather thongs like my Grampa used to do! Altho he painted his tools red!! Maybe so he could find them again!! Lol
Tricia Cliff says
These are gorgeous! I would like to pretend I would use them, but in actuality, my husband is the one who gets it done!
Drool….I have a few flowerbeds in my veggie garden and pathways and new beds I’m alwaya starting, so if I’m lucky enough to win these, I will dig and cultivate to my hearts content or until I run out of garden beds! The tools are gorgeous, so thanks for giving me a chance to win!!
I would keep them! Gardening with an audio book playing is my time to rejuvenate. These are beautiful!
I would definitely keep these. I love it when people put thought and care into their craft. It inspires me to do the same with the land and garden.
Amanda C says
Those tools are so beautiful and I would have so much fun digging in the dirt with them.
Janet cooley says
I’d keep them and almost not want to use them to preserve their beauty.
Beth Linquist says
I would gift them to my daughter Emily. She is a wife, mom, gardener, and, until yesterday, a student. She handed in her last assignment for her master’s degree!! Now she gets to focus on other things she is passionate about which includes being a gardener.
Anne P says
I will definitely keep them. Too awesome to gift. I could really use new tools I have to admit that I tend to buy inexpensive tools and right now mine are in bad shape.
Hawaii Planner says
Those are absolutely beautiful! I’d be selfish & keep them!
Martha Buchanan says
I would do the biggest happy dance that you have ever seen someone with a bad knee ever do! These are beyond beautiful. I have been gardening for over 35 years and have never seen anything like this. How wonderful it would be to garden with them.
I would do a happy dance before using these in my garden! Because they’re so beautiful, in the off season they would decorate the wall in the mudroom until I have my “she shed”.
Wow! I’d definitely keep them and use them in my garden.
These are absolutely gorgeous! I’d keep them. I’m still trying to figure out high-altitude gardening!
I would get back into the dirt with those gorgeous tools!
Julie K says
I would totally keep! Those tools are beautiful!
I would gift these beautiful tools to my mom. She loves to garden and would really appreciate them!
Expand the raised bed gardens that are already in the planning.
Patty Ryan says
I think I would keep them ….and then do a happy dance 🙂
If I won, I would keep them to use in my own garden.
I have already bought the seeds for my medicinal garden and my tisane garden I plan on growing next spring. These tools would be a joy to use!
Keep them, and definitely do the happy dance!
Lea Ann H. says
If I won this beautiful tool set, it would get a lot of use as we work to transform the yard of rocks and weeds at our new house into a productive flower and vegetable garden.
I would wait until my brother in law visits – he also lives in Butte, Montana, and also welds – and wave them in his face and say, “Why don’t you make me cool garden tools like these? You need to get into the garden tool business!” And then I’d run away into the garden before he could make a reply. And then later I’d feel bad about being mean and give him some of my garden vegetables to appease my conscience.
Paula L. says
I would keep these gorgeous tools for myself, but share the tomatoes and vegetables they would help me grow!
I would totally use them myself! Those are beautiful!
So lovely! I would gift them to my Mom, as she’s the biggest gardener in our family…
Lesa Glines says
As a home herbalist I would love to win these tools! I’m planning to expand my herb garden next year and they would be well used.
These are awesome. I would gift them to my mom. My boys love to watch the blacksmith when we go to Fort Nisqually. We uave a membership and go regularly and they still stand there for about an hour everytime. I love that more people are getting recognized for working with hands.
Heather C. says
Those are totally gorgeous! This is a hard choice between keeping them for myself, or gifting them to my 80year old MIL who is always saying they just don’t make things like they used to. If those pictures are any indication- they do make them like they used to but it’s just harder to find. LOVE THEM!
Sue P says
Garden baby!! That’s what I would do! And then I would perform the happy dance while I show them to everyone I know! They are absolutely beautiful!
Mama Cook says
While I would be very tempted to keep them, I would have to gift them! Since my son was 4 he has been an avid gardener, and now as an adult owning his own landscape business, I think these would be a perfect gift!
I am buying a house and still looking for one with old farmhouse charm. These tools will help me when I establish a garden when I find that perfect (to me!) house.
I would display them in my harden shed. And stare at them as often as possible. And make my friends jealous.
I would keep those lovely tools all the myself. Hide them from my preschooler so I could actually find them when I need garden tools.
Mary Ouellette says
I would use the tools to start a flower garden at my new home in Texas!
Deborah R says
Oh My Goodness, these are so beautiful. I would use them myself and hopefully one day pass them on to my granddaughter. She’s my little garden helper and loves to play in the dirt and get first taste of whatever we are harvesting.
I’d garden til the cows came home with these beauties!
I would plant the rest of my hundreds of daffodil bulbs!!!
What an exciting gift ! would have to keep them. I’m always looking for great hand tools to use while I garden. These are gorgeous and I’m sure they are more beautiful covered in dirt !
They look beautiful
I plan on expanding my yard into a food forest.
I would keep them and do a happy dance. We have just moved as well and I have a lot of gardening to do!
They are beautiful! I would gift them to my best friend. She is an amazing gardener!
Anna C.B. says
I love how honest everyone is about keeping these! LOL! Well add me to that list – I’d be keeping these, too!
Wendy M says
Those tools would be a great excuse to start the container garden that I’ve been putting off.
Use them in my garden of course 🙂
I am hard pressed to decide on whether to use the tools myself or gift them to a sister-in-law who gardens extensively. Maybe a few years of container gardening for me and eventually give the tools to that SIL.
We have a budding blacksmith in the family, and these are so beautiful! I will be using these tools in the herb garden.
Ellen in Clackamas says
I would defibrillate keep them! They are so beautiful thought I don’t know if I’d want to get them dirty!
I would use these in my kitchen garden. I’m always putting something new in and refreshing the area. These would make me enjoy it even more!
Nancy T says
It would be hard to part with them but I would give them to my sister who lives in Wisconsin and gardens her whole backyard all be herself. In the past twenty years she has taken a mundane yard and turned into a showplace garden that gets featured on a garden walk in her community!
I would keep them! And think of you when I am gardening.
Suzy H says
Do a happy dance out to the garden to use them❤️
Gorgeous tools. They would be used in the new greenhouse when it’s built in the spring. They’d be hung in a place of honor to show off their beauty and then used to help prepare the soil to grow the veg and fruits I’ll be putting in it.
I would definitely keep these tools. They would be awesome to use in my container garden.
Sandie Apuzzo says
How beautiful these are. I would use these to put my seedlings in (grown under my grow lights )
Mary Ann says
These are so beautiful! I would definitely gift them to my son-in-law for Christmas. He is a mechanic and so he takes such good care of tools. He truly values them. He started a garden for his family this year and did such a good job. They had food all summer long and all organically grown. I am very proud of him. He would definitely love these!
Definitely keep them. They are gorgeous and I love using items made by a local craftsman vs mass market produced items
Def keep em!!!!
We live on 1 1/2 acres in Southern California and grow most of our own food. I have multiple gardens and have been thinking about keeping tools in each area in a tool box. I would put these in my main garden bed area so they would be easily accessible when I see something that needs to be done!
Pam H says
I would display them in my potted plant area by my front bump-out window. I’m sure they are amazingly functional but I really love their beauty.
Sheri Temple says
I love the shapes of those tools! If I won the set, I would gift them to myself. I know which bed I would try them out in first. I have a bed that runs next to my garden. I fight the grass from growing in the bed. I’m thinking about digging out the choked out asparagus, laying fabric down and putting in a raised bed.
Those are beautiful. Definitely keepers and users.
Sharon Imbert says
I have a small backyard garden. I would love to expand it. These beautiful tools would help me do that!
If I won the tools I would definitely keep them! And I would do a happy dance for sure! Thanks for the opportunity to win such a beautiful gift.
Jennifer H. says
I would give them to my daughter who loves to garden in Nashville . They are beautiful.
Dianna Morales says
I would have keep those. I love their old fashioned look and of course having those I wouldn’t misplace them either… they would need a special box…
I will gift them to my husband who truly appreciates things made in the United States of America, as opposed to the crap from China.
Chris M says
Really nice! They would be for my husband and I and probably passed down to one of our children …
Laura Arnett says
If I win I would use these in my and display me on the wall for all friends and family to see what took s in used to help create and amazing garden :)) what a wonderful giveaway today- thanks Mavis!!!
I would keep them and consider myself a very lucky gardener.
Mandy Mascaro says
Those tools are gorgeous! I would definitely keep them for sure and do that happy dance too! LOL
Those are too beautiful not to keep!
I would be gifting these to my mother.
I would love to give these a spin in our pig-yard-turned-kitchen-garden. They are lovely.
Beth Sowulewski says
These tools look like Montana where they were made – enduring, tough, strong. I would love these tools and use them – thinking of Montana and my Dad. My dad loved Montana and the west taking my family on camping trips out their to share the beauty and his love. I have a new raised garden bed this year which got me back into gardening and square foot gardening. My daughter and I plan on putting a second bed in this coming summer and the tools will be put to good use.
Christina Baldi says
I dream of making my backyard a sweet potato and strawberry plot. To honor my Dad who waited patiently for me to finally catch the gardening bug. These beautiful tools will use my hands to pass on Dad’s gardening knowledge to his grandkids.
Gorgeous. I would love to win them.
Laura in Texas says
Wow, these are amazing! After the happy dance , I would keep them for use in my 7 raised garden beds. And even if I don’t win, I am excited to know they exist!
My husband blacksmiths as a hobby so I really appreciate the skill and time these tools require.
This gift will make someone’s day for sure!
Duhh… happy dance of course.
Linda Reynolds says
Those tools are beautiful! How dare a plant not grow when tended by such a beautiful tool.
This is a wonderful opportunity to get really nice garden tools.
Would make a great gift, but I would have to keep these and share with my daughter next door.
Nothing better than digging in the dirt to take a way the stress that follows us daily.
Keep them for myself! And use them lovingly during the main growing season and probably hang them as a wall decoration the remainder of the time. And tell my husband to keep his hands off. He doesn’t need to “test just how strong they are”.
Tracy Soule says
I would be totally selfish and keep those beautiful tools for myself!
Susan Dillinger says
I will probably gift these to my sister who has become a greater gardener since moving into my moms old house.
I would gift them to my mom and use them with her next spring!
Rynda Gregory says
Wow-they are beautiful! If I won these I’d probably squeal with glee. I am starting to have arthritis creep in to my hands and these handles look like they have a nice girth to them, which would help !
Martha H says
Like so many others, i would keep these tools and use them in my vegetable beds. They are beautiful! Thanks, Mavis, for a hosting this wonderful giveaway.
Tanya B says
I’ve never owned a decent set of gardening tools so these would definitely go in my garden cabinet! Thanks for this opportunity, Mavis!
Linda Fane says
Oh a happy dance would be in order as I would definitely keep them and put them to good use in my flower beds!
I don’t know any avid gardeners so would have to keep them for myself and tend to my garden. But I’d like to think I would find someone along the way who is keeping the art of gardening alive and then I would pass them on.
I would definitely keep them and use them. I would think you, Mavis, all happy in your garden and little house, up in Maine each time I picked them up!
I would give them to my mom, who is an avid gardener. They are beautiful!
In two years we are buying our dream house on property and I plan to grow a huge garden…these would work right in with our plans. These are beautiful garden tools.
Angela Ritchie says
I would use these in my raised beds in my front yard so I wouldn’t lose them at the big garden
They would find good use in my Minnesota soil digging in flower bulbs in spring and fall.
Donna Braun says
Beautiful work. Definitely a keeper for myself.
L. Adkins says
I would keep these for myself as I have arthritis in my hands. It’s hard to find garden tools that are both quality made in the USA and designed to be easy to use.
Oh, I would do a happy dance if I won these!
Ooh gorgeous! I’d probably gift them to my sister, who is opening a mobile flower truck business this spring!
Samantha B says
I’d love to keep them for myself, but I would give them away to a friend. She’s been helping me a ton with my yard work as I recuperate from breaking my leg.
Betty Bennett says
I would keep these beautiful tools and hope that some of the skill and art that went into them would rub off on my gardening!
Mary Jamison says
I moved to a smaller home (my husband passed-away in 2018). I made some very brave decisions without him. We were married 52 years. I would use these tools in my “new” garden that I plan on having in 2020.
I would use them in the garden with my son!
I would definitely keep these if I won! Gorgeous!
I’d keep them ! They are beautiful
Linda Harper says
I love gardening but find that I have to sit and scoot now that I’m in my 60s. These hand tools are perfect for how I garden!
My goal for next year is to spend far more time in the garden. Life is stressful and digging in the dirt is the cure. I’d love to have beautiful tools to heal my frazzled brain.
These would be wonderful for the 100 plus pots of flowers on my deck every summer. Thanks for the giveaway!
Karen Wright says
I would gift this to my wonderful daughter-in-law who is artistic and would appreciate their beauty. Plus also she loves to garden!
Those are beautiful! I would love to win – and I’d use them in my garden!
These tools are brilliant!
I care for a forgotten courtyard at the hospital where I work. It’s a glassed area between the ICU and the Burn unit, and one floor up, looking down on this is our Heart Center. Anyone looking for me knows exactly where I am, and these tools would certainly be a talking point for the nurses, patients and docs!
Mary Beth says
These will be great for working in my gardens! My front yard is mostly raised beds and fruit trees with a border of blooming perennials that attract pollinators. I’m also converting my back yard into a native plant garden (and a few more fruit trees!).
As a haphazard and generally unprepared gardener, these would do well to legitimize my efforts (vs. using a big spoon from the kitchen).
So lovely! Thanks for the giveaway.
I would most definitely gift this set to my father because he’s spending more time gardening as he becomes more frail in his advanced years. It would bring him joy and that’s what I want for him.
Sarah S. says
I honestly would keep them and use in our garden in the Spring. But I have a feeling my kids would take them and use them as they love gardening with us.
Terrie Cortez says
These are the most beautiful tools I have ever seen. I have been attempting to get my 4-year-old grandson interested in growing food and raising perennials & herbs. We have made things together in the kitchen with some of the things we have grown together(he loves pear butter!). I would share these tools with him as I continue to teach him about the fun and satisfaction of growing things. Then, when they weren’t in use, they would be on prominent display so others could appreciate their beauty and workmanship!
Those are really nice tools.
I would use the beauties to tend to my own garden that includes a variety of bulbs, annuals and perennials. These are special enough to hand down to future generations. My 12 yr old son is especially fond of gardening and our chickens! The chickens were inspired by you!… and your many stories about them 3 houses ago in WA.
This would be perfect for my daughter living in Chicago. She’s an OB-GYN and shares a garden plot with some friends. She would love using these.
Oh what beautiful tools! I will keep them if I win them…and do a happy dance….
This past spring, I converted our front yard into raised beds that are 30 inches tall and 2 ft/3ft wide, with galvanized roofing tin on the sides. I would love to use those tools in our beds.
Mary Kerns says
I would do a little happy dance and definitely keep these if I was so lucky to win them. Hello from Port Orchard!
The tools are beautiful! It would be interesting to watch the tools being made! I’d use them myself in the garden or gift them to my daughter and her husband.
I would give them to my son who’s starting his first garden. They are gorgeous!
Janice V says
I would keep these beautiful tools and use them in my vegetable and flower gardens. And of course do a happy dance!!
Christa H. says
I will keep them and use them in my new gardens!!
Megan D says
I’d gift them! Thanks for the giveaway!
Wendy Lato says
Beautiful tools!!! Your giveaway is spectacular. I would share them with my husband to use in our raised beds. Thanks for offering them.
I’d want to display these because they are so beautiful, but I would also use them in my garden and greenhouse. They are the kind of things that grow even more beautiful with use.
Patty Lewis says
Part of me would want to hang these up and display because they’re so beautiful! I ultimately would use them during Minnesota gardening season. Thank you for the opportunity to win these and congrats on the success of your blog. I love it!
Sandra Cirello says
Very Unique Garden Tools!!
I will definitely keep them and use them to put in our first garden in our newish home (we’ve been here a little over a year but weren’t able to get our garden in last summer).
The tools look so fun and sturdy. I would keep them to use in the garden. It makes gardening fun to have nice tools
I’d like to keep them! I hope I didn’t mess up. When you say enter only once do you mean once a day? If not I’ve already disqualified myself!
Mary Ann says
Definitely will keep them!
Use them in my garden!
I’m in the middle of a complete makeover of my yard, those look so nice to use!
I’d love to use these beautiful tools in my garden! Thank you for offering this opportunity.
So beautiful! My mom would flip over these.
I would definitely keep these beautiful tools. I have a large garden and can use all of them.
Patricia Winterscheidt says
I will keep them for myself if I win!
I would gift my husband with these-we use Earth boxes on our deck for our garden and his loving hands cultivate lots of veggies for us each summer.
Ted S. says
I like to think I would give them to my gardening crazy brother, but I am afraid that once I saw them I would keep them for myself! They are so sturdy looking!
I would keep them & use them to get my new raised bed established! Hopefully I can get something to grow this year!
These tools are beautiful! Blacksmithing is a lost art. I would gift these to my mother who loves to garden and shares this joy with all of us by keeping our yards looking beautiful each year. My neighbors walk over for advice when they see her in the yard.
This coming summer will be my third summer as a gardener in a community garden. I love the work and I absolutely love eating my own produce and sharing it. There’s nothing like it! So the beautiful garden tools would be put to use doing this beautiful work.
A former supervisor is retiring this month and I’d love to gift these tools to him. We both share a love of gardening.
Jennifer P says
Beautiful gardening set – I’ve not decided whether to keep or give away but guessing after holding one it will be hard to let go.
Jenny Young says
I will keep them & share them with my grandson when we work in the garden together.
Lynn from NC Outer Banks says
Oh they are gorgeous tools! I would use them when I put my spring garden in, here at the beach. Love your blog, Mavis and thanks!
Joyce T says
I’d definitely keep these beautiful tools for myself.. I’ve been looking for a quality set of hand tools for the garden.
Thank you for this opportunity!
These are so beautiful. I will use this every summer. I have gained an appreciation for good tools!
Anissa Telle says
Definitely keep them! I bet my beloved Cherokee Purple Tomatoes would taste even better using such gorgeous gardening tools!
Anna Garza says
Oh I would be torn about keeping them for myself or giving them to my mother, the family gardener.
Kathryn Babcock says
Beautiful work. I live in a small community where forging is an art. I would use this in my container garden to start then move forward.

If I won, I would keep them and use them! Thanks!
I would definitely be keeping these for myself. I appreciate quality tools when gardening.
L Bryant says
I would display them in my little greenhouse but use them for their durability and strength. I think that items that show real use and care are so wonderful to enjoy!!!
We are in the process of moving to the Pacific Northwest (Oregon). And with our new home will come a huge – and I mean HUGE – garden, where I plan to grow just about everything my heart desires. I’ll be in absolute heaven! So I would love to own a set of handmade garden tools to compliment my new gardening endeavor!
Lisa VanDoorne says
Surely my raised beds and potato patch will be even more successful when I use these beautiful tools?
Paula Dearr says
Oh Mavis, These tools are beautiful, a true work of art. They would make any chore in the garden a pleasure.
I would divide , cultivate, truly get busy working on moving my boxwood to a better spot! Planting bulbs in the fall,
keeping my garden weed free. The black walnut handles would remind me of my mom who would crack black walnuts on the back porch when she was a girl….read your blog every morning, love it!
Lynda Schripsema says
I would definitely do a a few happy dances with those tools in my hands! My garden tools have all gone the way of lesser quality equipment: broken welds, split handles, and rust (probably my fault). The items pictured are works of art and even LOOK like they’ll last a century!
If I won, I would keep them and use them. Good tools are hard to find, and these look like they are awesome! Thank you so much!
Those are beautiful. I would have to keep them!
These are gorgeous! I think these would be on display when not in use if I were so lucky to win. Thanks, Mavis!
These are soooo beautiful and I’ve been coveting them for a while! I’d of course plant my spring garden with them!
Claudia M says
If I win the garden tools set, I will keep them for myself……I don’t mean to be selfish but I like to lose myself in my garden! It soothes my soul, it rejuvenates me, my garden makes me soooo happy! My garden is THE GREAT ESCAPE! 🙂
Debby T says
I would use them in my potted garden..
Julie T says
I will put these to great use in my vegetable and flower garden. I don’t even have to worry about anyone fighting me for them…no one helps me. 🙂
Oh how many garden hand trowels and rakes I have bent straight and then broken… these hand-forged beauties look like they could hold their own! I would keep them and put them straight to work!
Shelle Lenssen says
These are GORGEOUS!
I would either keep them for myself and hubby (who actually does most of the gardening) or give them to my grandma who at 85 still loves to spend her (non-winter) mornings in her flower beds!
These are beautiful ♥️ After 5 moves in 5 years, we are finally settling down and I’m so excited to have a “bit of earth” that is mine again and can’t wait to get my hands in the dirt.
I would want to keep them and enjoy using in my gardens.
Every year I’m getting better and better at gardening. I plan to expand my garden and these tools will help.
I would hang them for decoration in the winter and use them in the garden in the spring!
They would be mine, all mine, and I would use them daily. Love them!
I love to garden so they would get a lot of use!
I absolutely love them! I would plan to keep them and use them to harvest my winter veggies, and plant my spring veggies!! 🙂
I would keep them- they are beautiful and high quality garden tools that keep up with me are hard to find!
Nancy W says
I will be keeping them and using them in my new vegetable garden! We just moved and will be building some raised beds so that I can garden once again! These tools look wonderful, thank you for the giveaway!
Mary Van Keuren says
I would give them to my 93 year old mother, who still loves to garden but needs well-balanced tools because of her arthritis.
Mavis, these tools are beautiful.! I am the treasurer of our local garden club and I am such a fraud. I don’t know the first thing about gardening except I like to have things look neat and tidy and these tools would make me look professional to all my garden club friends!
I would LOVE using these beeeee-utiful tools in our large vegetable garden here at “red maple
Thanks, Mavis, for we entertaining all of us with your very fun blog!
The way a tool should be made…. incredibly beautiful!
I’m so keeping those beautiful babies all to myself. The Kings Kitchen Garden will be grateful:)
MaryAnn Smith says
I would keep them for myself! I would probably hang them in the garden shed and never let dirt touch them.
Bonnie Testerman says
When I win, I shall keep them on display and very clean. They are beautiful and deserve such treatment.
Kim Riley says
Holy cow, are these awesome. There’s no way I’d share them with anyone else! lol I’d probably have to make certain my husband keeps his hands off from them too! We have a lovely piece of land in northern Michigan, but the previous owner loved rock gardens. The problem is that the rocks go down very, very far. I would use these tools to try and dig some of the smaller rocks up to then plant some perennials in the beds. It’s been very tough going with the tools I currently have. These look very sturdy and I bet they’d be up to the job I’d love to tacke. Thanks for the giveaway, Mavis.
I am trying to make everything I own either beautiful or functional. These would be both, and are so wonderful. I would treasure them and use them!
Beverly Collins says
Oh my goodness! Pure beauty. I could not imagine giving them away. I would use them in my flower gardens as well as my vegetable garden. I don’t think these would break when I need to get under a large root to dig it out. What a gift this would be.
Mark Leal says
These tools look FANTASTIC! I will certainly use them in my vegetable and flower gardens. I will be gardening in style!
Margaret Hudgins says
I plan to keep these beautiful tools to build raised garden boxes for my back deck. I can’t bend over much due to disc being removed from small of my back, I’m going to try waist high boxes so I can garden again, and these gorgeous tools would fit the bill nicely.
Helen Sutherland says
I would dig, dig, dig! They are beautiful! I would keep them forever!
I would use these in my little garden in the city.
Addie Young says
I would use them with my daughters in the garden we put in. Those tools are gorgeous. My girls are 5 and 8 and we enjoy eating what we grow. It certainly helps convince them to try new veggies too!
Ellen C. says
Happy dance for sure! And then to gardening. Whoever is lucky enough to win these will be sincerely happy!
Karen Bream says
Oo Laila , as cysco the Gardner on TV says ! I would love any of the tools to use in the community garden that I am a part of – the garden shares compost, water,gardening tips and donates parts of the harvest to the local food bank Weekly… It’s a great hobby and place to meet other Gardners. Love the craftsmanship in these tools!
Diana DeAngelis says
Oh Lordy! Not only will I keep them and use them, but I will keep them clean and hang them in a prominent place in my house as they are gorgeous! A piece of art, really.
Donna Jantzer says
This is my favorite giveaway ever! I’ve never seen these tools before, but I’ve dreamed of them! Now that I have some raised bed gardens, I use hand tools almost exclusively, and these would be a joy to use for conditioning, planting and mulching!
Oh my word! Those beautiful tools are KEEPERS!
I would keep them for myself since mine are getting a little rickety. Honestly though, it would see if my mom has decent tools and gift them to her first. If they really do last for generations, then I’ll get them back eventually.
Susan Hall says
I certainly would keep them and use them. I have a large yard, intensely gardened; it’s my pride and joy. Can hardly wait to get in it each morning. These tools look very practical.
Robyn Quinter says
What beautiful tools! I’d share them with my hubby t expand our garden. Thanks for the giveaway.

Oh, these are beautiful. I would give them to my granddaughter who had her first garden this year. If I don’t win, I have her name for Christmas, so may just go to his Esty shop and buy then anyway.
I would keep! They are beautiful! We would use in our many flower/veg gardens!
Hi!!! I don’t win these things but if I did, I would make my husbands Christmas with them under the tree
Phyllis Pierce says
Wow, what beautiful hand tools, I would have to keep those for myself! They are almost too beautiful to use, but I would!! Love your blog Mavis!!
Such artistry. I would most definitely keep these and probably display them rather than use them…or maybe I would do both. 🙂
These tools would be the perfect thing to help me do battle with some old flower beds and create what my son calls “Flower Mountain” on a hill in our yard.
We are moving and I’m sad about leaving our house and garden that we’ve worked so hard on. Having these new tools would be motivating to get things going at our new place.
Sarah B says
I plan to tend to my vegetable garden….
KEEP THEM! and jump start my new vegetable garden !!
Judy Terwilliger says
Gift them to my gardener husband!
I have never seen such beautiful tools! If I am lucky enough to win them I think I will keep them and use them when working in my flower and vegetable gardens.
gina jurgensmeier says
I will keep them and used them.
Wow – these are beautiful! I would gift them to my husband, which is sort-of like keeping them, so the best of both worlds 🙂
I have wanted a rake for awhile and just haven’t bought one??? This would be a great set to use in my raised boxes. I would definitely keep them and use them!
These tools are beautiful!! I wil use them to tend both my vegetable and flower gardens.
Becky Williams says
I will share them with my husband…..just kidding. They are for me to use in my flower beds. They are gorgeous!
If I won these beautiful hand tools, I would share them with my brother who is a very fine container gardener.
What a great looking set of tools. We have 6 raised bed gardens and would definitely use them for those.
Such beautiful tools! They might actually make me enjoy getting out there to weed!!
Jennifer Simmons says
I’d hang them on the wall until spring. Then I’d USE THEM!!!
April in EP says
Oooooh La la the tools are so pretty! Will use them to set up our garden in El Paso Texas. Year round gardens so awesome.
Thanks for the giveaway!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m in the season of my life where enjoy ‘less, but better’. So, less wine but better quality. Less stuff but better made. Less people but better friends…you understand. And these would fit in just so well.
I would put these to use in our flower garden.
Jacqui Gauld says
I would gift them to my daughter as I don’t garden. They are very lovely, little works of art in their own right and she too would appreciate that.
Michelle A. says
Those tools are beautiful! I would weed and plant with them, in the dozen raised beds that my husband built for me.
Kristy Keller says
I like them! I would get back to gardening with them once the weather turned nice again. 😀

So, so beautiful! I’d play in the dirt, of course— specifically landscape with herbs.

I would use these tools in my garden. My husband made me a really nice raised garden so I need any tools I can get.
I would love to share but not sure that I could

I would keep them! We moved to all native plants in our beds a few years ago and we need to do some adjusting to the original plan.

Karon Monahan says
I would give them to my daughter, today is her 51st birthday, she is in her garden every spare moment!
Victory Utesch says
Hi Mavis! What a lovely set of tools! Thank you for the giveaway….what a wonderful idea. If I would be so lucky as to win, I would feel so fancy as I putter in my garden beds. I love to work in my yard, but as I get older, I find I have less stamina. These tools might be the spark I need to stay at it longer! I hope you have a great Holiday Season!
I want to expand my garden. These beautiful tools will help with trying new things!!
They are so beautiful! I would have a hard time using them but come spring I would just have to give them a try! Luckily it’s a long time til spring so I’d have plenty if time to admire them.
Michele from Oregon says
Such treasures they are…and since I’m now 75 I would use one those lovely tools until I can’t anymore and then pass it on to my daughter to use until she can’t garden anymore and pass it on to her daughter! That’s what you do with an heirloom quality tool.
Sue R. says
What craftsmanship! I would use them and take good care of them!
I would KEEP them AND do a happy dance!! And I would garden with my kiddos in our side yard.
My girls have taken over one whole raised bed for their fairies and flowers. I have two more raised beds for peas and tomatoes and strawberries. I’m crossing my fingers for such beautiful tools! Thanks for your generosity and blog, Mavis.
I would love to share them with my husband, who is the bigger gardener in the family. They are gorgeous!
I would give to my sister for her flower beds and containers
I’ll use them in my flower and herb garden. They are so pretty, I’ll have to find a place to display them when not in use.
Erica Gajewski Harris says
I will be doing a little happy dance while I plant my spring veggie garden 🙂
They would definitely be an upgrade from my dollar store tools lol.
My husband would love these!
We have a community garden plot, and I would use these tools to plant seeds, plant starts and weed.
Judy Anderson says
I would use these beautiful tools to tend my acre of flower and vegetable gardens. They are truly heirloom worthy to pass on to my children who have the love of gardening.
Beautiful tools. I would have stopped in my tracks too. I would not only use them in my garden beds but proudly display them on my barnwood wall behind my potting bench.
Holly V. says
These tools are beautiful!!!! I don’t know if I could use them to actually garden though…they are works of art!!
Katie Schneider says
I got the trowel for my mom last Christmas… she is a BIG gardener and taught me most of what I know. I’d keep this set and use it on my own urban farm!
I am due to replace my junky set. I would love to have a set that is great quality that will last a lifetime.
Melissa D says
I’d use them in 1 of my 5 little raised garden beds. ❤
Marie Beers says
Wow, I’d keep them for me. They look like they will be strong enough to handle the thick
Alabama clay that’s in my flower beds. I promise to keep them clean and shiny after each use.
Sherry in Sumner says
Does the guy come with the tools? Ha! He’s a cutie.
Seriously, though, my husband taught me over the years to appreciate quality products and take care of them. I am a gardener and would use these tools continuously and also keep them pristine.
Shelley Briley says
I would use them in my greenhouse. I really like “one off” items.

Nanci Fitschen says
Those tools are beautiful. I would use them. The ones you buy in the stores don’t last.
Oh wow , these tools are beautiful! Better than anything I’ve ever owned. I think I would clean and dry them after each use, they are so pretty! And then I would hang them in a prominent place so I could admire them 🙂
I would use these beautiful tools this spring when I expand my gardens and when I tend to my beds.
Dig for my dinner, of course!
I have a huge vegetable garden and numerous flower gardens so I would keep them! They are beautiful!
Amy Cooper says
I would keep them, although I’d have a hard time actually getting them dirty because they are so beautiful!
Definitely keep them- they are too beautiful! Plan on retiring soon, these are gonna be one of the first things I use when I become a woman of leisure
Angie Simonton says
What lovely hand tools. I know I could put these to good use on my 5 acres. I really want to have a better vegetable garden this upcoming summer, and those tools would really help. Thank you for doing this contest.
Gorgeous set of gardening tools. I would use them around my roses and in my raised beds where I plant seeds and store bought annuals and herbs.
shawn lafavers says
These are so pretty; I think I’d actually use them. I really have a lot of weeds to pull, and have nut grass weeds (ugh) that really must be processed by hand in order to get the whole “nut” out as I don’t want to use poisons to kill the weed.
I would definitely keep. Right now after 2 snowstorms producing almost 3 feet of snow and wed thru fri with power outages, I am already for gardening aeason.
My big goal for 2020 is to restore my parent’s yard to it’s former glory. I will add a few little changes, like adding some more color and changing out a few things that have overgrown their space. It’s an ambitious task, but with these beautiful tools I stand a chance.
Lisa C says
If I won, I would keep these beautiful tools. They would be wonderful to use planting my annuals in the spring!

I would use them in my raised garden beds. When not using them, I would have them on display hoping someone else would be encouraged to purchase them.
I would probably keep them, although if I was feeling unselfish I would give them to my gardening sister. 🙂
I would totally keep them! We are moving to a new house, with no garden there. So I will be starting fresh and these would definitely help me!
Teresa Young says
I’d definitely get a lot of use of thee tools in the new gardens we need to put in since our move this year.
Linda Practical Parsimony says
Since all my garden tools, from lawnmowers to trowels, were stolen, I would use these next year for my potted tomatoes and in ground herbs. I love them!
Totally keeping. All my tools are falling apart.
For sure I would keep them and do a happy dance!!!
I would keep them, and then when I am no longer able to garden (many, many years from now I hope) I would gift them to my nephew. Those are certainly heirlooms!
Those tools are so beautiful. I would keep them for my very own ❣️
Patty P says
I would keep them and use them in my own garden. I’m pretty hard on hand tools, but these look like they would hold up!
I would like to say I would share them with my brother but I would probably totally hoard them myself.
Carolina Cooper says
I would give them to my son, who has loved gardening since he was a little boy and is now teaching gardening to his son (age 20 months). But I would include a note with the caveat that some day he would pass them on to my grandson. So the chain would continue, as my Mom was also a great gardener!!! If I don’t win, I will go to the web site and start a collection of tools. They are so beautiful.
I’ll going to plant my first raised bed garden with these wonderful tools
Keep them. These are amazing!!
Linda Myers says
First, shock. Second, happy dance. Third, rub my hands in glee.
Mari Hewson says
I’m currently battling with chemotherapy after breast cancer and have been told to keep my hands out of the soil. It’s summer here in New Zealand so things are growing rampantly and I am finding it hard to keep out of the garden. These tools would let me weed and obey the rules. Thank you.
I would give these to my husband for Christmas. He just retired and the gardening bug has bitten him. He has great plans for the next growing season.
I woukd give them to my husband who loves to garden. We are moving bext summer and he will have a new yard to transform.
Vicki in Birmingham says
If I were to win these wonderful tools, I would be workin’ it in my garden (veggie and flower) come Spring!!
Barbara N Gantt says
Those look wonderful. I would keep them to use in my new bulb garden. Last week, planted another huge bag of daffodil bulbs.
Deb Myers says
Oh my gosh, those are gorgeous! Did you see the leather tool belt on their website? It is awesome! I’m not sure I’d want to use the tools. I’m afraid that I would be inclined to grab my cheap plastic handle tools. There is just something mesmerizing about a craft done so well. Thanks for sharing!
Meg C says
I would use these gorgeous tools to plant my dahlias and my heirloom veggie garden!!
Granny B says
As we recently relocated 7 houses away from our youngest grandchildren, I would love to share the tools with my 3 littles to get them excited about growing their own food. I’m the only gardener in my family and want to share my love of the dirt with them.

Of course I would love to keep them because they are extraordinary but, my youngest daughter is getting married in the spring and they have the cutest little house and it will be her first time having her own gardening space and I am hoping to encourage her to continue our family love of growing some of your own food and flowers for the shear joy that it brings!
These are beautiful; I’d use them in my raised bed vegetable garden.
Oh boy…I would put those marvelous tools to work in my little patch of wonder in Blythewood, SC. I would make sure they came inside with me every night so they would stay in pristine condition!

You are so right! Those are gorgeous! Something to take good care of and pass on down to the next generation of gardeners!
Thank you for the fun giveaway and the chance of winning! I would like to say I would unselfishly gift them to my gardening sister, but I really want them! 🙂

garden??? what else would they be used for?

Tammy Mcquilliams says
I plan to give these to my niece!
Michelle H. says
I would keep them.
Rebeka McNeil says

I have to admit I would be very greedy and keep them! My own tools are so decrepit that they are pretty much useless. These are gorgeous….just think of the tomatoes I could grow with them. Yeppers, I so need to win these beauties!
Thanks so much for doing this giveaway Mavis. You’re the best. These tools would help me plant my carrots and my smoothie garden with kale and chard. Can tools be beautiful?
Arbie Goodfellow says
White Rabbits…White Rabbits!
I just started gardening this year and I would treasure them!
However I would be happy to share their use with my husband 🙂
Next year I plan on expanding my very tiny garden and grow more items for honeybees and the birds.
Eeeeeek! They are gorgeous! I would hang them in my small country veggie patch garden. We have a large retaining wall that sits behind the 4 raised veggie beds. They would look so cute hung up on display and then also to use 🙂
Randi Seaberg says
Serious Snoopy happy dance! I’d use them to resurrect my garden that faltered this summer due to my working in the office (boo!) too much. Love that these are made in Bozeman, MT! My kiddo attends Montana State University there, such a cool town!

These are beautiful and would be put to use in my vegetable garden boxes in my backyard and landscaping around the house.

Mrs. M says
Beautiful craftsmanship! Beautiful blog!
I think I would split up the set; keep one and gift two so that others could also enjoy their beauty as they garden. I’d give one to my mom and one to my avid gardener friend.

I would keep, keep, keep them and make sure that they were handed down to future generations. Works of art, I say!

I would use them in my own garden to replace the rag tag set thst I’ve gathered over the years that are falling apart

I’m a horticulturist, so I’d definitely keep them!
We would use these wonderful tools every day of gardening season and then use them in the greenhouse. We just retired and are starting gardening for the first time in our lives. My husband was actually born in Montana so these tools would be close to his heart.
E in Upstate NY says
These are drop dead gorgeous. Many years ago, was engaged to professor at Bozeman, so I spent a summer there with him learning and loving the area. Ultimately, things didn’t work out between the two of us, but I still have a soft spot for Bozeman MT. If I were to receive these lovely tools, they’d become the basis of my gardening hand tools. Have worn out many, and would enjoy knowing I was working with something that I could pass on to my son, who also has my “gardening” gene.

I am going to keep those for myself and use them in my zombie apocalypse garden!

Hello Mavis 🙂
I actually remember reading your post way back when you first got your garden rack at the NW flower and garden show. I also live outside (way north east) of the greater Seattle area.
I would use this beautiful set to weed and dig in my herb and flower gardens!
I would give these to my bff who LOVES gardening with an undying passion, and whose garden is one of my favorite places on earth.

Jamie Lentz says
These are so beautiful– they would be a gift for my mother-in-law! She loves to garden
Lynn Y says
I would use them to tackle my fear of returning to my garden, only I would put on my garden gloves first. You see, I’ve been recovering from a NASTY bacterial infection that I probably picked up from my garden (a bacteria that loves composts and organic gardens). Use your garden gloves, People, and wash those hands afterwards!
carol clark says
ill keep them cause i garden and this i would love to add to my collection
Kathy T says
Beautiful! I would keep them to use.
I would keep those for myself!
I would keep them, use them and cherish them.
I would gift them to my mom to use when she stays over and works in our garden…that she started and cares for since I have a black thumb 🙁 Then hopefully she will eventually hand them down to my daughter (who is 2-years-old right now), who is learning to garden and appreciate growing things from my mom. The best part is my daughter even likes to do the weeding and will cry on some days when I tell her it’s time to come inside…she tells me, “I want to weed!” I’m hoping this lasts as she gets older 😉
Sandi Hozeska says
OMG…those are absolutely gorgeous!! The craftsmanship is outstanding!! I’m gonna be selfish and keep them for myself if I win and do a major happy dance!! They inspire me to get back out in the garden. I’m tired of constantly buying tools that bend and just don’t do the job.
These gardening tools are the BOMB…I am an avid gardener and yes I would keep them and put them to good use!! Thank you Mavis
Stephanie Liske says

These tools are Art, but meant to be used, BY ME. I would definitely put them to work in a postage stamp garden in NC. I would think of your daily Inspiration Mavis, and my love of Montana, the West, and true American Craftsmanship. This is the kind of gift that makes one smile and want to GARDEN.
Jennifer R says
I would definitely keep these one of a kind garden tools. They are beautiful as well as would be practical for my patio garden.

Kathy K says
I would keep these beautiful tools for my husband. He deserves to have some really fine gardening tools.
If I win this Gorgeous set of hand tools, I will do the Happy Dance every time I get to go into the garden!, I would keep them clean and dry, hung inside by my dining-kitchen door, that leads to my raised bed of strawberries. I know this would be a beautiful reminder to get my butt outside and play in the dirt! I have been trying to encourage my family ( and myself) to get involved in growing more food, flowers too! I think this might do it, So pretty hung by the door, Daring us to get outside and play in the dirt and whatever sun we get in the PNW. And Mavis, once my gardening days are done, and you and I have my 3 kids hooked on the good life in the garden….I will leave each child, 1 tool of their own to continue the Happy Dance!
Thanks for the opportunity to dream a happy dream!
