Twisting the tines of a fork comes from centuries ago. Those days they used this Technic to create more strength in the product. Today we have the opportunity to do it again but in a better way and with stronger material that has created new benefits. The tines have a tapered tip which makes it much easier to work with. It's an easy tool to dig trough your soil, to mix topsoil and dirt in your border and its a great plant removal tool too. The strong well done connection is the toughest connection ever.
