Thoughtfully designed, these tools are a real innovation in traditional digging tools. The large, comfortable circular handles allow a greater range of natural hand positions, avoiding wrist strain.
 
 
The steps (found on all of the tools except the forks) are larger, higher set and offset slightly from the shaft, to provide a wider surface with better foot registration than traditional steps. The steps are also folded forward and slightly curved (traditional steps fold backward, toward the user, and are straight), which softens the corner to reduce ankle injuries. Last, the angle of the step is slightly greater than the traditional 90° relative to the blade, providing a better push angle for the tool.
 
 
All the tools have a resin-encased steel shaft core, and all have a stainless-steel head except for the planter, which has a powder-coated steel head. The line includes a digging spade and fork (for heavy digging, ground preparation and harvesting), a smaller transplant spade and border fork (for lighter work such as digging borders, transplanting perennials, and working in close quarters), a shovel, a planter (the teeth easily penetrate soil to quickly create multiple 3-1/4" dia. holes for bulbs or annuals), and a weeder.
 
The versatile weeder, with its narrow blade, can also be used as a single-tined fork to loosen hard-packed and rocky soil. Additionally, it is excellent for digging in tight spaces around plants, rocks and roots, and as a long-handled dibber.
 
 
 
 
The digging spade and fork are sold individually, as a matched pair, or as a set of three with the weeder, as are the transplant spade and border fork. All exceed the British strength standard for digging tools, which specifies that 121 lb of force can be applied at the end of the handle without breaking it.
 
Overall lengths, head sizes and weights are shown in the chart below.
