Hello to all : )

I am very excited to find out that there is a 'new to me' tool available from Yury Smirnov, of Ecominded.net for a very special giveaway of four Fokin ploskorez hoe blades!

" The Fokin ploskorez hoe was invented in by Vladimir Fokin. It can be used as a hoe, spade, rake and even like a mini scythe, as it is sharpened on all planes of the blade. This tool is used and loved by Sepp Holzer! These are genuine ploskorez (flat-cutters) made by the Fokin family. They are crafted from forged, tempered steel which makes them very strong and hard to bend. "

I am looking forward to being able to test out this incredible tool  - if I am able to win it - here at my own place. The very fact that it is durable is extremely important to me - mainly because I am constantly killing my tools when out in my garden. I have very hard clay soil and many rock hiding below ground. I have already killed 4 hula-hoes : some by breaking the metal stirrup part of it from pressure exerted trying to dig under the surface and others by snapping in half the old wooden handle of the tool.

I would very much like to win one of these indestructibly sturdy steel Fokin Flatcutters. Thank you, Yury, for putting on this give-a-way for us here at Permies!

That which doesn't kill us makes us stronger. I think a piece of pie wouldn't kill me. Tiny ad:
