Pegasus is a multi-purpose tool, affectionately known as the clodbuster. The limewood shaft has a similar shape to that of the Sirius. The blade is of heavy-duty bronze, reinforced with a brass collar.
Pegasus can be used for breaking up the soil or clearing brambles and nettle roots. As it is quite lightweight, it can also be used for hoeing drills and close weeding.
With a fork, the gardener digs down, pushes and lifts the soil. With Pegasus, gravity works with the gardener. We let the head of Pegasus fall and it digs into the soil, then a pulling motion draws the head through the soil, breaking up the clods and loosening the weed roots.
It is bit like a plough, one that goes under the soil and aerating ((but not disrupting the soil layers}.
