Designed to cope with the toughest of digging jobs, this heavy-duty DeWit 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.

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.

N.B. The shape of the T handle has recently been changed to taper slightly at each end (see our DeWit small fork with long T handle for the current design).

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.
