This distinctive National Trust high-carbon steel garden spade gives a nod to the style and quality of the garden tools of yesteryear. It has been made using traditional manufacturing techniques, with an attention to design detail which delivers a digging fork of strength and durability, to make gardening easier for everyone.
This garden spade has been tested to a breaking strain of 100kg, far in excess of the British standard of 55kg. The high-carbon steel tines and socket are solid forged from a single piece of metal for optimal strength, with a textured powder coating in an unusual antique bronze shade for protection from corrosion. The Spade features a robust D-handle in high-carbon steel for maximum life, and the joints at socket and D-handle are double-riveted for a secure connection. The FSC® ash shaft and grip give enduring comfort, and the shaft bears a brass plaque as a hallmark of the reassurance of these two trusted names in gardening.
This digging spade carries a ten year guarantee, as do all the tools in our National Trust made by Burgon & Ball collection. By purchasing these tools, you are helping the National Trust look after special places for ever, for everyone.
