Nice Dibbles delivered promptly

Used the small dibble for planting the summer crop. I anticipate it to help me plant many more seasons’ worth of crops.

Thanks William for the review and for supporting local artisans and small businesses. We're glad you were able to use your Artisan Garden Dibbles for planting and will get many years out of them. Enjoy!

huge disappointment

i’m sorry to have to give a negative review but this item was poorly made. the screws were in crooked, the blade is cheap & crooked & the wood split. i sent it back & await my refund.

Hi Lisa. Thanks for your review. We have processed your refund and will forward your feedback to the maker. Please do note that the screws are put in at an angle to hold the blade taught. And the blade is attached 'crooked' on purpose for the best angle to contact and cut the loaf. Thanks too for supporting local artisans and small businesses. It makes a big difference.

Wish for a switch

Unfortunately I cannot use the knife because I am left-handed. The blade is wonderfully sharp, but the screws holding it on are very crooked. A suggestion would be to make the slice guide more narrow and provide left and right handed versions.

Thanks for the feedback Lynne. Sorry you were not satisfied with your item. We have emailed you a fully paid return label in case you would like a replacement or a refund. The item is available by special order in a left handed design. Thanks for supporting local artisans and small businesses. It makes a big difference.
