bulldog -forged tools

Lawnrollers are common-ish in Britain, don't see them too much in the US. Was looking for them and found OldGardenTools, a fascinating site of... old gardening tools, mostly British. Hoof boots to protect your lawn from the horses as they pull your lawn roller?? Yeah, they have those.

Anyway, found this company Bulldog that has been producing railway, construction, farming and garden tools since 1780. They handmake the solid forged tools on custom constructed machinery in Wigan, England. Great video of the process below.

16" grass hook - ground on both sides and allows the hook to be used left or right handed.

"Irish slasher" for heavy hedge/thicket work.

Bill hook for hedgerow maintenance (hedges are a big deal in the UK)
