Watch an Action-Packed Video of a Swedish-Ukrainian Berry Rake

These would have been great for the hunters and gatherers.

If you have been picking your blueberries and mulberries one by one, then you have been doing it wrong. 

Welcome to the juicy world of berry rakes, which expedite the process 10-fold, and even come with a smooth-jazz-soundtracked promo vid, thanks to manufacturer M-Tools (tagline: “I came, I saw… I gathered”). This Ukrainian company urges you to gather your berries yourself using these tools made in Sweden. Not only will the berry-picking be swift—the company says “the gathering process may be extremely beneficial and bring positive emotions.”

We’re shown the two versions: professional and optimal. At the one-minute mark, the berry raking revs right into turbo mode (thanks to the spring wire and ergonomic handle)—though not everyone can master the swift scooping motion with such panache.
