|These tools are hand-forged in stainless steel by Sneeboer & Zn and are the best we have come across. This spade is part of a range especially designed by Great Dixter.
As much of our planting is done on our hands and knees, this short handled spade with a narrow head makes digging larger holes easier and less arduous than using a hand trowel. The handle enables you to use both hands when digging but also gives greater control and precision than you would have using a proper length spade. Its angled head means you can scoop the soil out. This is a really useful tool when tucking in plants amongst others. It has an ash handle.
Overall length 56 cm; face L13.5 x W12.5 cm.
