FSC-cer­ti­fied ash shaft and han­dle with steel re­in­forced ‘D’ grip. Shaft riv­eted into stain­less-steel socket and blade with scored treads. Weight 4lb 11∕2oz (1.86kg). Blade 111∕4x7in (29x18cm). Over­all length 433∕4in (111cm).

Per­for­mance

Feels light and long. Shaft and han­dle of­fer nice grip – the raised riv­ets and socket edge are no­tice­able, but are no prob­lem when dig­ging. The blade slips into the soil eas­ily and lifts a well­pro­por­tioned spit that’s con­trol­lable and easy to flip. Good lever­age from the long han­dle. Wet soil sticks a bit, but pushes off eas­ily.

Value

Slightly more ex­pen­sive than the Bur­gon & Ball spade, but it’s an equally classy and pol­ished per­former.
