I got these parts from Crafts Supplies a few months back because my mom is a gardener who spends her entire summers out in the yard. I was born in Hawaii and as a family we have a lot of great memories of Hawaii before it got so touristy so I chose this beautiful curly Koa for the handles. They were shipped off today for Mother’s day and I know she will love them. This is a great project for the green thumb in your life.

These are beautiful. I use Crafts Supplies a lot for pen supplies and am impressed with their quality. Do these tools have that same quality… you think they’ll hold up well in the garden?
Once again, very nice work.

They are stainless steel tools with a good weight. I have to really work to seat them in the 5/16th hole in the handle and they didn’t bend in the slightest. Yes I believe these would be just the same as something you would get from the likes of Smith & Hawken.
