Steel & Wood Soil Cultivator / Hand Rake
Also made by the same father-and-son team in Japan’s Niigata Prefecture, this soil cultivator and hand rake is handy for aerating dirt, removing weeds, and preparing soil for planting.
Kondo’s hack? “If you have a small compost pile—and don’t have a big pitchfork—use a cultivator to mix up your green and brown materials to ensure your pile is receiving enough oxygen.”
