About BROOK & HUNTER
The tools would need to have a unique design and be capable of standing up to rigorous use. They would require very little maintenance yet be built to last substantially longer than other tools on the market. They would need to do all this and remain affordable. But most importantly, they would need to be treasured by the gardeners that use them.
This development would take us a thousand years into the past. We would trace the lines of evolution and innovation from generations of laborers, farmers, and gardeners to create a time-tested and well-refined design. The tool would be a natural extension of the human form, fitting perfectly into the hand.
The blade would be strong, smooth, and efficient—something simple yet elegant. We would need blade shapes that could accommodate the different sizes, ages, and genders of gardeners. We would start with the traditions and knowledge of the past and adapt them to the modern gardener. Locally designed and sold in San Diego.
