Ninja and Samurai Tines
The Ninja and Samurai tine is now available to customers in the UK and Europe from Agronomics Services Ltd. These superior quality tines are precision tool engineered specifically for golf course putting greens.
The tines are machined from a single piece of the finest Japanese steel, the one-piece construction and design offers surpassing reliability and longevity, similar to that of a samurai sword!
In order to achieve high durability the balance of the hardness and the toughness is extremely important. Toughness of the metal is gained through the quenching process, more frequent tempering and quenching will lower the hardness of the metal. This unique expertise and technique is derived from the traditional method to manufacture Japanese swords.
Specific to Ninja Tines are their unique shape with dual tips that wear evenly and have proven extremely durable.
Unlike a traditional coring tine which is driven deep, to fracture the soil and create pathways for water movement, Samurai and Ninja Tines were designed to work in the organic layer only, therefore 40-50mm depth. For the removal of organic material only and not exceeding 50mm means that greens are immediately available for play.
The advantage with a micro-core aeration tine is the minimal stress to the turf and minimal surface disruption, you can tine like a Ninja and your golfers will never know you were there!
