What I like about Tuli’s work is the workmanship. Any gardener out there in the trenches knows that a well built, durable tool makes the difference between a productive time in the garden or a frustrating one. Tuli creates his garden tools out of hand-forged steel with black walnut handles. While they look like they should set on the shelf to admire or in a museum, these tools are built to be used. Get them dirty!
It’s only fitting that Tuli makes implements you’ll be proud to hand down to your grandchildren since he graduated with a degree in Museum Studies and History from Montana State University. He also studied tool making and starting forging in 1999, and kicked off his own business a decade ago. He knows what gardeners need, and it’s his passion to build the right tools for the myriad of tasks that await us throughout the year. Be sure to check out his website, and don’t forget to vote every day until Sept. 24!
