Generations of Britons have relied on the strength and durability of Bulldog tools.
These handmade gardening tools are still created in much the same way that they were in the old days, but with modern advancements that make them tougher than ever.
Bulldog forks and spades are truly built to last and are exceptionally strong. Farmers and gardeners all over the world have come to expect durability and long lasting strength in all of their forged metal tools from the Bulldog forge in Wigan.
These are the only handmade and forged metal gardening tools that are still made in the UK. All of the tools made by Bulldog exceed British standards for quality and are backed by a lifetime guarantee.
The tools are also FSC Certified and guaranteed to be made from a single piece of steel. All of Bulldog’s gardening spades and forks have heads that come from a single piece of steel. Then the company creates an Ash shaft and buries it deep within the head socket. All of the Ash used to create the shafts comes from sustainable sources.
Here is how the process works. First, raw planks of steel arrive at the forge. These are heated and stamped with a 600 tonne press into T-shaped blocks. Then each piece of newly pressed steel is reheated to 1100 degrees so it can be beaten and pressed into shape by the forge’s skilled craftsmen.
To create gardening forks the piece is heated and bent into a rough shape for further shaping down the line. Once the heads are finished they are shot blasted and powder coated. Finally, they receive a coat of paint for added protection. No welding means no weak spots. One piece forging creates gardening spades and forks that are unbelievably strong and durable.
Bulldog tools currently operates Britain’s oldest running forge. This one piece forging method has changed little in the last hundred years or so. One piece forged metal gardening tool choices include spades, shovels and forks, as well as rakes, hoes and cutting tools. Bulldog even makes a series of high quality super tough gardening tools for kids.
Everyone deserves quality for their money, and farmers and gardeners who choose to purchase one piece forged forks and spades from Bulldog will get a tool that will last them a lifetime.
