This photo shows wooden “D” handles being steamed, to be used for both spades and forks. The beauty of this handle is both in it’s design and the way it moulds to the hand over time. All our wooden handles are made from Ash which we get from renewable sources in Germany and the USA. We are pleased to say that we have had an increased demand for this kind of handle recently and so have increased the capacity of our steaming facility.

Here is a video showing the process.
