Rated 1 out of 5 by Rob London Split vertically down the blade
Like the other one star review, my spade also snapped. Slightly wet soil after an hours digging it split vertically down the blade for no apparent reason. I can understand a handle snapping, but not the metal blade it self which seems poor quality. I'd take it back, but I don't have the receipt. Until it snapped, was very nice to use.

D handle comfortable to use.
Wider than normal lugs at top of blade were good and stopped blade pushing into the sole of your boot.
It would be 5 star if the designers put a crank in the lower part of the handle. i.e. closest to the blade.
My previous spade, which is no longer in production,
had this, and was admired by many users for it.s 50 year life!

This is a great tool to use, it is not too heavy and is very sturdy.

The style and shape of this sturdy, digging spade
makes it easy to use. The footplates give a platform to steady yourself whilst pushing down into the earth. The moulded handle is a comfortable grip and the construction of the handle feels strong enough to take the digging weight without buckling.
Really pleased with this purchase.
