Handmade is a term not heard much these days, but as you'll see in the video above, the Sneeboer family still hand crafts each tool combining traditional hand forging and modern technologies.

Sneeboer hand forged Dutch garden tools have been handcrafted in Holland since 1913 and are considered the finest quality garden tools available anywhere in the world. Each Sneeboer garden tool is hand forged from stainless steel and individually shaped, sharpened and polished. All tools are fitted with hardwood handles from FSC Certified forests.

Today, the team of artisans at Sneeboer is mainly comprised of family members with 4th generation Sneeboers at the helm, all of whom are following the words of founder Arie Sneeboer ~

"One who once has held a Sneeboer tool in his hands never wants anything else"

Sneeboer Guarantee

Each unique piece of Sneeboer tool is made for life, but if there are any problems with your tools, please let us know. Our products have a 1-year warranty on the wooden handles and a 50-year warranty on the steel, stainless steel and titanium parts. If you have any questions or would like to claim under the warranty, please send an email with a photo to sales@sneeboer.com or contact the nearest Sneeboer dealer .

When we offer a replacement tool we will do our best to offer the same tool. If this is not possible, we will provide an alternative but comparable tool.

The following causes of damage are not covered by our warranty:

  • Normal wear and tear of the parts, missing or broken parts or parts that have been adjusted or changed by you.
  • Damage due to incorrect use of the product, i.e. when a tool is used in a way for which it was not designed. An example is when a spade breaks because it is being used as a crowbar.
  • When the tool is damaged because it has not been properly maintained or stored. An example is when tools are left outside all year round while they need to be stored in a dry place.
  • These warranty conditions also do not apply if a tool has suffered cosmetic damage that does not affect the function of the tool.
