We are open, making, and shipping tools normally. Our look has changed, but you have made it to the right place.
WELCOME TO Red Pig Garden Tools ™
Yes we are open.
We are making and shipping tools around the country as normal. Some shipments may be slightly delayed due to an unprecedented increase in the number of orders we have received since March. Thank you for your patronage!
Local orders may be picked up in Lake Oswego by appointment. We're also taking some extra precautions to protect our customers' health. For more information on that, you can read about what we are doing to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
DURABILITY & LONGEVITYWe make the highest quality garden tools in the United States the old fashioned way...by hand. We use steel, fire, anvil, American hickory and ash handles, and good, honest sweat. These handcrafted garden tools are stronger, sharper, and will last longer than any others you can buy, and they are made right here in Oregon, USA.
Although we make and usually have in stock more than two hundred different types of tools, we know that many people have that favorite tool that's just worn down and no longer for sale, or a memory of a tool grandpa used to use. If we don’t have the garden tool or agricultural tool you want on our shelves, let us know and we’ll make it for you—right in our blacksmith shop, where we make all our other tools. We specialize in making hard-to-find and historic tools, along with one-of-a-kind garden tools. We make more long-handled garden tools—like hoes, drags, spades, and a heck of a lot more besides—than are currently available through our website. Call or email for more info (see below).
If your tools are broken, we can repair and re-handle them. Dull tools? We sharpen them. Tools that don’t fit you? We’ll modify them. We do this most often locally, due to shipping costs, but if you live somewhere far from us and don't have a local blacksmith, we'll be happy to do the work for you.
We also produce many custom tools as well as perform general blacksmithing. If you live in or are visiting Oregon or the southern Washington area and want to pick up a tool in person let us know and we'll set up a time for you to swing by our temporary workspace, currently in Lake Oswego. It's very informal, but we make do. More information on a new more permanent space when we have it (and if you have a good idea for us, please send it along.) When we get a new store up and running, you’ll again be able to see in person a whole range of unique patterns and implements you've never seen before. While the former Red Pig store in Boring no longer carries Red Pig Garden Tools, it continues under a new name—Red Hammer Forge—offering hand-forged hardware, other tools, and custom blacksmithing.
WHAT CUSTOMERS TELL US
"I got my tools today and they're awesome. I'm really impressed. I used most of them in the yard today and I think my favorite is the Abbott. Keep up the great work and I look forward to my next set of tools!"
— Ben, North Carolina
"I was so impressed with the order I just received that I had to buy the root saw too! Thank you for your quality of craftsmanship. I have never seen such solid garden tools before. Thanks,
— John Gradzik, Connecticut Victory Gardens.
"I ordered two Red Pig tools and the ordering was easy and the shipping fast. Best of all is the quality and beauty of the tools. The rockery [trowel] is perfect for working around and in between rocks in my native garden which sets on a very rocky bluff. I will definitely be ordering more tools to replace the low quality tools I have been using."
— C. Smith, from Missouri
"I wanted to let you know that I received my V-hoe and hat yesterday. I am extremely pleased both in the products, but also in the service and quick shipping. The quality of the hoe is exceptional and far exceeds what I expected. I look forward to using it this weekend."
— Phillip Johnson, Alabama
