National Trust Digging Spade

This National Trust high-carbon steel digging spade echoes the style and quality of the garden tools of yesteryear.

Celebrating traditional manufacturing techniques, the garden spade has strength and durability.  It has been tested to a breaking strain of 100kg – that’s 82% stronger than the British standard. The high-carbon steel head and socket are solid forged from a single piece of metal for optimal strength, with a textured powder coating in a distinctive antique bronze shade to protect from corrosion. Wide comfort treads at the top of the blade prevent any discomfort for feet.

A robust D-handle in high-carbon steel gives maximum life, and the joints at socket and D-handle are double-riveted for a secure connection. The FSC® ash shaft and grip give enduring comfort, and the shaft bears a brass plaque as a hallmark of the reassurance of these two trusted names in gardening.

Like all the National Trust tools, this digging spade carries a Burgon & Ball ten year guarantee. By purchasing these tools, you are helping the National Trust look after special places for ever, for everyone.
