The Krumpholz family business forges high-quality forestry and garden tools in the Guttenberg hammer in Upper Franconia. The forge was founded as early as the Middle Ages and has its own hydroelectric power plant for energy production. The energy obtained is used to operate the large forging furnaces and forging hammers.
In 1799, the forge was acquired by Johann David Krumpholz and passed down from generation to generation. Meanwhile, the sixth, seventh and eighth generations live and work together on the Guttenberg Hammer. With centuries of experience, real masterpieces for gardening and forestry work are forged here.
Hoes, shovels, spades, hatchets, splitting axes, hoopoes, sow’s teeth, dandelion pullers, flower claws, gardener’s sporks and much more are hammer-forged from Swedish steel to the highest quality standards. Only selected materials are used. Sturdy metal parts made of high quality steel of different hardness. Extremely hard steel for high stability, flexible steel to absorb hard impacts.
The material is well kneaded during forging and the microstructure is compacted, which increases the strength. Durable ash wood and hard hickory wood are used for wooden handles and grips. This creates durable garden tools for professional users and gardeners with high demands on their tools.
