Designed to cope with the toughest of digging jobs, this heavy-duty De Wit solid socket spade is built to last a lifetime.

Forged from a single piece of carbon steel bolted to a turned hardwood ash handle, the spade is extremely robust and will never bend or break with normal use.

The curved and sharpened blade slices through even heavy soil to make difficult jobs easier - from digging between plants in beds and borders to turning over unprepared ground and planting trees, shrubs and plants.

The longer-length ash shaft reduces bending and back strain, while the ergonomic T-handle makes it easy on hands and wrists.

A superb-quality general purpose spade for the garden or allotment.

Head width 16cm
Total length 115cm

About De Wit tools

The Dutch are renowned for making the world’s finest garden tools, and De Wit is the most respected name of all. Founded in 1898, the family-owned toolmaker combines old-fashioned quality and craftsmanship with innovative design to create superior tools that last a lifetime.

Every tool is hand-forged in the Netherlands from tough boron steel - shaped, sharpened and burnished for durability, giving it the same blackened patina as traditional Edwardian tools. Each is fitted with an FSC-certified solid ash handle for ultimate strength and shock resistance, oiled to provide first-class protection against the elements.

All De Wit tools come with a lifetime guarantee against manufacturing defects, making them a truly once in a lifetime purchase.
