A Kansas man is turning old plow blades into gardening tools, and he’s selling them all over the world.
It’s a big business that can be found in a very tiny town.
This week’s Main Street Kansas takes us to Munden, where Loren Kisby has launched quite the venture.
The secret is in the steel blade– sharp and strong.
“The very first one I made, I made for my own use,” said Loren Kisby, ProHoe Manufacturing.
Loren Kisby recycled a disc blade from his own farm to make a hoe that doesn’t wear out. He eventually turned his tool into a trademark.
“This is Rogue Hoe #1,” explained Kisby.
The logo, he says, is a rogue elephant that’s left the herd. “Represents strength and aggressiveness,” he explained. “Also, when you rogue a field, you take out all the unwanted plants.”
Now his business has a product line of 50 other tools.
