The Spork is destined to become one of the must-have garden tools and will become an essential part of every gardeners tool collection.
36" Long Handle and 10" x 6" Wide head. The handle is made from oiled ash and the head from high quality carbon steel.
In the 'Which? Gardening' trial the Spork was pitched against 9 other border tools by a team of professional gardeners. The trial was conducted over 4 weeks and all tools were assessed for a range of tasks: loosening and turning soil, clearing weeds and planting perennials and shrubs. Seven of the eight testers would happily buy a Spork and 3 would even swap their conventional spade for one. The serrated cutting edge was sharp and easily cut through soil and small roots. The Spork is good for digging, planting and turf edging.
"Its an ideal compromise between a spade and a fork -I would definitely buy one" said one tester.
"Its great for clay/loam soils, good for digging and turning over soil, and for breaking up compacted ground," said another.
"It was light and comfortable to use thanks to the longer length handle."
Source 'Which? Gardening' October 2008 . The Spork was designed by Englishman Robert Todd but is made by De Wit in Holland
The Dutch are highly regarded as makers of the finest gardening tools, and De Wit has been leading the way since 1898. The business is now run by the 4th generation of the De Wit family, using traditional techniques. All handles are hardwood, made from Oiled Ash which resists shock better than oak or beech. Blades are made from Carbon Steel, which is naturally tougher than stainless steel, and then burnished to protect it for longer and give it an authentic blackened patina similar to tools from the Edwardian era.
With a lifetime guarantee, these tools are a once in a lifetime purchase
