These tools are a bit pricy but well worth the cost. I was a bit doubtful about buying them because I like to try the feel and weight of garden tools before I buy, but with Birchbox's easy return policy I knew I could return them if need be. Lovely, solid tools that have a pleasant weight to them, very sturdy. I love to garden and I've gone through lots of trowels by bending them whilst digging...this one is not going to do that due to its weight and thickness!! I am thrilled to have a set that will last for years!! Also bought the matching clippers which are a dream as well. The lovely pattern is a delightful bonus as well!! Well done!
