Clarington Forge Spades & Forks - GardeningClarington Forge Spades & Forks - Gardening
In operation since 1780, Clarington Forge is the last remaining forge in England that still produces garden tools. The head of each of these spades and forks is individually forged from a single piece of steel for strength and durability.

In fact, these are the strongest gardening tools we offer, with a strength rating far in excess of the British standard (which specifies that digging tools bear at least 121 lb of force at the end of the handle, and border tools bear 88 lb, without breakage). Though robust, they are not indestructible, so we do not recommend them for uprooting saplings or prying boulders.

The shaft is American white ash with a traditional wood/steel combination D-handle grip. The digging tools are perfect for heavy digging, double digging, ground preparation and harvesting. The border tools are smaller, making them more suited to lighter digging or for gardeners with less strength. The rabbiting spade, with its narrow curved blade, permits digging and transplanting in close quarters without disturbing surrounding plants. Although originally used for opening up rabbit holes when a hunter’s ferret (used for flushing out the rabbits) went astray, this style of spade makes a much better gardening tool. All the spades are treaded for comfortable digging.

Overall lengths, weights and head sizes are shown in the chart. All are built to last a lifetime.
