These forks have ergonomically designed tubular steel handles with a molded plastic cover and comfortable handgrips. The stainless-steel heads are durable, non-rusting and scour well. They are ideal if you do a lot of heavy work, or tend to leave your tools out in the rain (or snow!).
The digging fork is ideal for heavy digging jobs, double digging, ground preparation and harvesting. It measures 45" long, has an 11" × 7" head and weighs 5 lb 12 oz.
The smaller border fork is suited to digging in and around borders, transplanting perennials, mixing in soil amendments and digging in close quarters. It measures 44" long, has an 8 1/2" × 5 1/2" head and weighs 4 lb 14 oz.
Both forks meet the British standard for strength and quality, which means for the digging tools you can apply up to 121 lb of force at the end of the handle and be confident it will not break. However, they are not designed to be indestructible, so we do not recommend them for uprooting saplings or removing boulders.
The digging fork and the border fork are both available in sets with a matching spade (available separately). We guarantee these tools fully and will replace them should they fail you in use.
