Sometimes a spade is not, simply, a spade. This one is an ideal choice for planting, dividing, or transplanting perennials plus all those jobs that need something larger than a trowel but smaller than a full-size spade. The ergonomic T-handle reduces stress on the hand and wrist, and works equally well for left- and right-handed gardeners. The ash itself gives the handle a little bit of elasticity, so you can dig confidently without fear of the handle breaking. The smaller size also makes working in tight spaces, raised or elevated beds easier.
Crafted for us in Holland by a fifth-generation, family-owned business, DeWit® tools have been the standard in gardening for more than a century. These uncommon tools are not simply stamped from thin stainless steel — they're forged from the finest high-carbon boron steel. With a tang that extends deep into the sustainably grown and harvested ash handle, each tool is guaranteed to stand up to a lifetime of use.
