The development of a new breed

In the laboratory of Jaap Sneeboer many of our innovations are born. Sometimes small enhancements of existing tools, sometimes using new materials, like our titanium set. And on a rare occasion a new breed is found. Of course such a revolutionary new tool doesn’t get born overnight.

The beginning

“When I think of a new tool, I always start of with some rough drafts, then I create blueprint of the tool and provide my team with the directions to guide them through the crafting process.”

The design

With the inside radius of the blade you easily cut roots or divide shrubs, no bending of the tines due the hybrid “made out of one piece” construction, light and strength, fat clay doesn’t stick to the blade, less resistance, V-shaped forged tines.

Finding the right name

“When I took over my dad’s business April 1986 I admired Sheffield”. The Field Shef is our homage, our admiration to Sheffield, the Steel City and its surroundings, known for British Steel, cutlery and where the best English garden tools used to be produced.
