This compact DeWit hand spade combines the digging power of a border spade with the lightweight manoeuvrability of a hand trowel.

Comfortable and easy on the wrists, it makes perennial planting a breeze. Use two-handed to effortlessly break up compacted ground with the forged sharp steel blade before planting.

The small head is the ideal size for lifting roots and bulbs, and makes it easy to work in tight spaces and corners. An indispensable tool for all serious gardeners.

As the wooden handle will naturally shrink over time, a locking nut fixes the head in place. All you need to do is re-tighten the nut every so often to keep the tool as strong as ever.

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 11.4cm x 17cm
Total length 51cm

About DeWit tools

The Dutch are renowned for making the world’s finest garden tools, and DeWit 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 DeWit tools come with a lifetime guarantee against manufacturing defects, making them a truly once in a lifetime purchase.
