This trowel was originally designed and manufactured for the renowned horticulturalist Georg Arends. Around 1920, Georg recognised the need for an improved design of trowel for use in his nursery. The Sneeboer Maubach trowel features a wider, flatter blade that makes the digging of holes easier whilst also creating the perfect shaped hole for planting. If your hand slips whilst using this trowel, the flat top across the blade will help to avoid hurting yourself. This trowel also features a cherry wood handle.
