The Turning of the Year

New year, new plans, new hopes, new ideas . . .

 . . . and a new price list from Blackberry Lane!  Quite a few prices DOWN !

Glaser Tools in Switzerland usually publish their new prices about now, and in 2015 there was no change as world steel prices had levelled or even dropped a little.  This year, the price of quality spring steel (used for the tool blades) has apparently risen, so they have increased their prices to us.

However, over the last few months, the exchange rate between the UK Pound and the Swiss Franc has improved, so we have actually been able to offer REDUCED PRICES for almost the whole Glaser range.

You can find our 2016 Catalogue at and our 2016 Price List at or you can download them from our website.

This may be a good opportunity to buy, as the exchange rate can easily change the other way, plus there may well be the usual rise in postage costs in late March or early April.

Glaser Tools have also introduced a new larger-size Aluminium Adjustable Rake, 96 cm wide with 26 teeth.  Sorry, no pictures yet, but it sounds like a larger version of the existing 74 cm/20 tooth and 55 cm/18 tooth ones which have been proving quietly popular since we started stocking them back in 2013.

They also have some new tools planned for 2016.  We are awaiting these with interest, and will let you know about them when they arrive.
