The Dutch company Sneeboer is well-known for its high quality, stainless-steel, hand-forged garden tools. With the use of traditional hand-forging techniques, Sneeboer is able to combine modern methods with traditional techniques. Because of Sneeboer’s revolutionary techniques, the Royal Hand Hoe has been nominated to be RHS Chelsea Flower Show Product of the Year 2016. The Royal Hand Hoe is derived from the best-selling Royal Dutch Hoe (itself a 2014 Chelsea Product of the Year finalist).
The Royal Hand Hoe is the creation of Jaap Sneeboer who himself took inspiration from Mark Abbott-Compton and his team of master black-smiths. Jaap Sneeboer enthuses “our combination has instilled excellence and quality in the design which is the result of a long lasting testing period; the Royal Hand Hoe will appeal to all passionate and ingenious garden-creators from all over the world”.
On May 22nd, a panel of gardening experts will decide at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, which innovative gardening tool will become Product of the Year 2016.
