This is an excellent spade for working in tightly-planted garden beds - the narrow head allows you to get into small gaps between plants and dig without damaging neighbouring plants.
This digging blade is a unique design - it's v-shaped to make cutting through roots easier.
It's a versatile and practical tool to use throughout a day of planting because of its smaller profile and light weight - without the same fatigue that would come with using a heavier tool with a larger blade.
Has a T-shaped ash handle, which is unusual in North American but quite comfortable and easy to use once you get used to it. Less obtrusive than a bigger D-handle.
