Not all gardening trowels are equal! Made with tough stainless steel, rich walnut wood and topped with a leather strap, the Asano Mokkousho Garden Trowel is a balance of timeless design and trusted sturdy construction.
Asano Mokkousho has a long history of designing tools under the guidance of farmers and other agriculturalists. Forged in the metalworking district of Tsubame-Sanjo, in Niigata, Japan, this simple trowel has the weight and tactile beauty of incredible quality. It’s made for professionals but is also perfect for home gardening enthusiasts.
Founded in 1950, Asano Mokkousho was born from the marriage of Teisuke Asano, a Niigata farmer’s son and Sakae Sasagawa, the daughter of a Tokyo manufacturer. Teisuke’s knowledge of agricultural needs and Sakae’s manufacturing know-how led to its first product - a simple farming hook. Now the family-run business produces everything from home-garden sickles and hoes to specialized professional tools.
Items are made in Tsubame-Sanjo, Japan’s famed traditional metalworking district, where Asano Mokkousho works with a long-established network of craftspeople.
