Tuli Fisher began studying traditional tool making in various settings in 1999, but in 2003 his passion for blacksmithing was rekindled. After helping a local community-supported farmer repair his tools and make even better ones, Tuli decided to create his own line of timelessly beautiful garden tools in his Bozeman, Montana backyard. Since then, Tuli’s handmade tools have been recognized in major media publications such as ELLE Décor, Sunset Magazine, and Forbes Life, to name a few.
Each tool is crafted using traditional blacksmithing tools and techniques, resulting in incredibly unique heirloom-quality gardening tools. The hand-forged metal is consciously set into an American black walnut wood handle, making each tool extremely durable with added heft in the garden. The weight and strength of the tools support increased capability when working with all varieties of soil, and the turned handle provides additional support and comfort while handling.
Fisher Blacksmithing garden tools are ideal for both the avid and occasional gardener, as a wedding or parents-day gift, or for anyone with an appreciation for high-quality traditional handcrafts. These time-tested and sustainably produced tools not only leave a minimal footprint on the earth during creation and use, they promote a more sustainable and healthy lifestyle by encouraging local gardening and growing.
In addition to making fabulous garden tools, Tuli operated a full time horseshoeing business for over 12 years. Tuli has demonstrated traditional blacksmithing techniques at Conner Prairie Settlement in Indiana and the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, Montana. He’s a member of the British Artist Blacksmith Association as well as the Artist Blacksmith Association of North America. Tuli is now wholly focused on building fine garden tools in Montana with his wife and two Australian Shepherds.

For every L. condom purchased, one is distributed in a developing country. Pure, effective, empowered protection ~ perfection!
