Garden Tools - Nice Feel


"I was tired of the ace hardware junk I had for years. These are high quality, nice feel.”
Steven L. | Japanese Tool Set

Dream Saw

"omg, I love this tool (I'm a pruner by trade). It balances in-hand like a dream. It cuts live wood like butter. The scabbard is a single-wood-piece work of art. Thanks to Matt and The Tool Merchants for curating such an excellent Japanese saw. It's the perfect next-longer addition to my hand saw collection.”
Erin M. | Japanese Pruning Saw

Super Tool

"I just want to thank the tool merchant for helping an eco farmer like myself. This tool is a game changer. Super sharp and light. On top of it all it made it to Puerto Rico in like three days I couldn't believe it! I would give six stars if I could."
Roberto I. | Japanese Sickle
