Great spade. by Jayne on 10 July 2019

Despite having really hard stony ground, this spade makes digging so much easier. A great quality spade.

Excellent service and very pleased with the spade

A vast improvement. by Geoff See on 20 September 2018

Much easier to dig with than the more conventional shape of spade even a stainless one, very pleased with this.

Although expensive it should last longer than run of the mill spades where the metal appears to be of inferior quality by John on 7 September 2018

This spade is specially designed for digging soil rather than general purpose use like some other spades. It will have limitations if used for multipurpose tasks but if used for specific garden tasks then it should last for many years. The UK steel results in a better quality of metal used in manufacture.
