This spade is one of our own designs, created in collaboration with DeWit. Modelled on DeWit’s punchy solid socket spade, we’ve made it just a little more wieldy and manoeuvrable. Perfect for working in beds and borders.

Made from sturdy 3mm thick carbon steel, the blade is not full-sized nor small but somewhere in between with a really sharp beveled, rounded edge.

The curved leading edge easily slices through soil, even if it’s heavy clay or tangled with roots. Great for breaking ground to create new beds and borders as well as turning them over for the autumn dig.

Forged from a single piece of high-carbon steel, the head is bolted to a shock-resistant turned ash handle. An ergonomic T-shaped grip makes for comfortable handling. Supplied with a lifetime guarantee on metal parts.

Please note: take care not to place excessive strain on wooden handles when levering out roots or rocks in very firm soil. To help, water the area well to soften ground first. A crowbar may be more suitable for very heavy or stubborn obstacles.

Head W16cm x L21cm
Total length 108cm
