My uncle in Russia has been searching for decades for ways to make soil cultivation easier. While permaculture makes the most of nature's own resources, Ploskorez tools utilizes human resources combined with seemingly ancient engineering designs. Our tools are light, ergonomic, versatile and most of all - effective when it comes to soil productivity! They proved to be particularly beneficial to elderly and disabled gardeners. Handle is made with silver birch or aspen. Shape of the handle is rounded rectangular, giving it a better grip. Blades are made with stainless steel, requiring minimum maintenance. Most tools have adjustable angles to suit different people's height, working style and individual preferences. All handles are long 130cm but can be cut to size.

As festive season is approaching, we thought that our tools would make a unique and useful present. Our tools are available in Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France, UK, Ireland from our partners and we can ship to most parts of the world. Please write to us with your inquiry: info@ploskorez.co.uk.

We also appreciate your feedback if you are already using our tools and welcome any suggestions where we can improve our range.

Please note that we are setting up a charity from next year to give access to our tools by less able gardeners and your support will be greatly appreciated.

Warmest regards,
Vladimir

I recently received a pair of these hoes (two different sizes) that I ordered from http://ecominded.net/news/fokin-s-ploskorez.html a little while ago. I used a hockey stick for the handle. It works fantastic! Best hoe we have ever used. No regrets. We will probably buy more. Great for finest weeding, for grubbing out roots or rhizomes, for tillage and every task we've set it to so far.
