It is our honor to present a selection of fine gardening tools this season from premier English manufacturers Burgon & Ball. In operation since 1730, this heritage firm uses only the finest materials in its tools: carbon-forged steel for the blades and sustainably harvsted (FSC approved) hardwood for the handles, plus a leather hanging loop. They are designed to last a lifetime, and probably to hand down to your gardening great-grandchildren.

The Vegetable Harvesting Knife is a must-have for all serious vegetable gardeners. It makes short work of cutting even tough brassica stems at the base -- those huge cauliflowers and broccolis, those massive cabbages at season's end! -- and enables you to quickly harvest your produce without damaging the stem or slicing through the foliage.

This knife is shaped like a miniature scythe, with a long, comfortable hardwood handle and a wide, curved, serrated blade. The fine serration enables you to saw as you slice, bringing two forces of cutting ability into play with every stroke. And the blade is set lower than the handle, so you can get right down to soil level without grazing your hand or assuming an awkward grip.

The Vegetable Harvesting Knife is useful for far more than just harvesting vegetables, of course. Its scythe-like action is terrific for swiftly shearing back perennials after they have flowered, removing suckers and shoots from around roses and shrubs, and even pruning plants in late winter for new growth. Just 12 inches long from the tip of the handle to the edge of the blade, it packs a lot of power into a compact size.

Pick up a Vegetable Harvesting Knife for yourself and one for a friend. This is the kind of tool that everyone wants to borrow, so forestall the need to share by simply gifting the Vegetable Harvesting Knife this season!
