Spear & Jackson Tools Since 1760, Spear & Jackson of Sheffield, England, has been hand forging garden tools to last a lifetime. Although more expensive, they are preferred because they do not bend or fail like cheaper pressed steel tools. A forged tool is strong because it is formed from one thick piece of metal in several re-heating operations. There are no welds or joints. Please note, however, that even a forged tool can be damaged if used inappropriately. For example, a fork could bend if used to pry up an embedded boulder that should be dug out with a shovel.

Probably the last fork I'll ever need to buy

Extremely well made and feels great in hand. I used to buy at least one of the cheap ones every year.

It broke the first year!

I loved mine too, but it broke within the first year. I thought it was really nice quality. I was only pulling up a juniper bush, which doesn't even have a very extensive root system!

I loved my satinless steel fork but it snapped today!

I've been using a SS fork purchased for Smith & Hawkins, made in England for several years.It has been the only fork that didn't hurt my hands so is indispensable.Today whilst turning leaves in the tine snapped off at the shoulder! I wonder if these are of the same manufacturer?

Great Quality

I have 10 of these for my high school gardening classes and they are used on a daily basis by many young hands. Not one has faltered under constant daily abuse. I would recommend these for heavy use. We do not have heavy clay or rocky soil so i do not know how they stand up to bending or breaking in those conditions. I would be willing to predict it would be fine under moderate use after tilling or turning with a mattock.
