Sophie Conran collaborated with venerable British company Burgon and Ball, in business since 1730, on her new line of gardening tools. Conran's pieces feature a larger grip (designed specifically with women in mind), a solid brass ferrule, and a waxed beech wood handle; the line is available from The Cook's Kitchen.
