This garden spade is slightly smaller than a regular digging spade making it ideal for digging in confined spades, or for gardeners who prefer to work with a shorter, lighter-weight tool.
This stainless steel border spade is endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society, the world’s leading gardening charity. Like all the RHS-endorsed stainless steel tools, this spade is covered by Burgon & Balls lifetime guarantee.
This spade has been tested to a breaking strain of 90kg; far above and beyond the British standard of 55kg.
Relative to its size, it has a large area for efficient digging. The mirror-polished stainless steel head gives rust resistance and clean movement through the soil. Wide comfort treads at the top of the blade prevent any discomfort for feet, allowing you to really dig deep, in even the most challenging soil.
The FSC certified hardwood handle has a comfortable 'Y' grip, double riveted at the base for strength. An extra-long, double-riveted strapped socket introduces strength and an element of flex at this key joint.
