    I was going to say that copper isn't anywhere near hard or durable enough for garden tools but visiting the link shows that are actually made of bronze with a higher copper content than normal which is a good alloy for this type of use. 
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    I’d be terrified of losing them at that sort of price.

    Nice friend though.🙂
