When I placed my first Sneeboer order, there were so many options! One of the big choices was which type of handle to order for spades and forks. When I was in England, I saw a lot of tools with traditional t-handles, something that I had never seen in Canada. I really liked using the t-handles myself so decided to focus on them knowing that it would make my selection of Sneeboer tools even more unique.
In the meantime, I've had a few requests from people absolutely committed to the d-handle, so this is for them! We're giving it a try. This is a stouter and heavier tool than the border spade, bigger blade too. Definitely well suited to strong bodies who want more digging power. It's one solid digging tool!

The Sneeboer family has been making garden tools for over 100 years. Sneeboer tools are beautifully designed and built for maximum strength and utility - the heads are hand-forged from one piece of stainless steel and they are fitted with ash handles from FSC-certified forests.
