The great benefit of this tool is its ability to easily cut into hardened soil.
Its unique carbon-steel head combines the functions of a spade and a fork – it has sharp teeth to penetrate soil, a large surface area for lifting and turning soil, and 1" gaps in the blade that riddle soil while also reducing friction and suction when digging.
The 9-3/4" x 6" blade is sized between a traditional digging spade and border spade, making it easy to wield. With the ash T-handle the total tool length is 46".
Forged in Holland, this high-quality tool is an excellent addition to any garden shed for working soil in the spring and fall, moving perennials, and edging borders.
