Since using copper tools, folks have found the amount of slug and snail damage in their gardens has greatly reduced. They stay free of rust, but age with a graceful bronze patina, especially good news for the coastal gardener.
Slugs and snails are the banes of many gardeners existences. The disappointment of disappearing seedlings after so much effort to bring them into life and all that is left is the tell-tale slimy trail, is heartbreaking. Slugs and snails have no natural magnetism because their blood is based on copper whereas we have iron flowing through our veins, with iron being magnetic and copper non-magnetic and highly conductive, using copper tools literally helps to preserve the magnetic energy field and vibrations in your soil, having the effect of a creating slug barrier as well as being long lasting and harder wearing!
The tool heads are made of solid bronze (copper with tin). Other parts are pure copper, brass and other copper alloys with responsibly-sourced European hardwoods including ash, beech or lime.
A few words on the benefits of copper - distinguished by its rosy gold colour, it does not corrode easily, it is antimicrobial, it is non-magnetic, it is recyclable, since the earliest times, copper items have been melted down and re-made into new ones. About 40% of the copper in use today is recycled. So your chosen tool may once have been part of a Roman Centurion’s breastplate!
Bronze, copper alloyed with a small quantity of tin, is harder still – up to four times the hardness of pure copper. It is used for the blades of all of the tools. It was the first alloy to be created by humans. It has a slightly more orange colour than pure copper, which has a pinkish hue
Copper or Bronze? Bronze is a copper alloy – mostly copper with a little tin. This Weeder is bronze (95% copper). The extra tin gives it the sharpness – and the orange colour. This Copper Dibber is pure copper, a pinkish colour.
