Old-fashioned quality combined with innovative designs make DeWit tools the ultimate gardener’s choice.

From humble beginnings, Willem de Wit started his blacksmith company in 1898, in a small village in northern Holland. As the local blacksmith, he shod horses, repaired kettles, sold bicycles, and carried out all the typical duties of a village blacksmith. Over the years, Willem shared his craft with his two sons, Derk and Tinus, and around the middle of the 20th century he passed the thriving shop onto them. Soon after, the business expanded by distributing spades and hoes to farmers all across Holland. The de Wit brothers quickly established themselves as the purveyor of the highest quality garden tools, forged from the best steel and formed by skilled hands.

For over 120 years, the name DeWit has been synonymous with craftmanship reliability and quality. DeWit is not afraid of innovation, this 5th generation family business combines craft with tradition. Hand crafted with quality hardwood handles and forged steel heads, often from a single piece of carbon steel, DeWit provides a tool for every task.

Today DeWit is working in a new factory, still located where it all began in 1898. DeWit tools are available in every continent of the world, thanks to a strong team of dedicated distributors and retailers. Built through the centuries and made to last – DeWit tools are more than just tools. They are an heirloom.
