I chose this for My Curated Christmas List 2023 because these hand forged garden tools struck me with their beauty, form, function, and story. They’re made by a fifth-generation Korean blacksmith from recycled railroad ties- Chuck Chewning

Master Shin In-Young is the head blacksmith of Master Shin's Anvil and owns the oldest blacksmith shop in South Korea, established in 1845. At age 13 he bagan his apprenticeship and at 17 he became a master, an unprecedented achievement even today. In 2016, the Korean government awarded him with the highest title, recognizing his rare, traditional skills and outstanding talent. Following old-world techniques and traditional minimalistic design, Master Shin creates high-quality, functional pieces that are also durable works of art.

This hoe can slide under weeds and invasive runners to uproot the mass. The pointed edge-shaped head can furrow and flick out weeds in walkway cracks.
