      PKS Bronze Garden Tools: Deterring Slugs and Snails and Improving Soil Quality

      Written by

      As the days begin to lengthen in the Northern Hemisphere and the seed catalogues appear in the mailbox, for some, thoughts turn to gardening. Whether you are preparing to tend your containers on the balcony of your flat, or thinking about planting seeds in the greenhouse, consider these beautiful hand made bronze gardening tools inspired by Austrian Naturalist Viktor Schauberger (1885 – 1958). Schauberger was a man of many talents – a naturalist, forester, and inventor who essentially founded Austria’s first “green” movement. His field trials in 1948 and 1949 demonstrated that using copper implements in agriculture resulted in improved soil quality and crop yield. Forty years later, through an encounter between a coppersmith and PKS (a non-profit organization founded by Viktor’s son Walter) these tools were born. Tool heads are made of solid bronze (a copper alloy), are rust resistant, have sharp edges, reportedly deter slugs and snails and have a lifetime guarantee. Tool handles are made of solid European hardwoods and are guaranteed for three years. https://pksbronze.com/
