Advice on good tools for the garden?

Monday, September 5th, 2011

My grandpa had tools that really lasted through the years – some he only ever had to buy once. I’ve already bought several tools that I’ve already replaced because they were made badly.
Anyone know of some good quality tools that are hard wearing and comfortable to use? I’m looking for small hand tools like a handfork and a shovel and a fork.

I DON"T JUST WANT A LINK! I want names and YOUR personal experience with the tools and what you like and don’t like.

Vote cheaters shouldn’t bother answering (you know who you are!) – I will be voting for the best answer.
