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.

The Heritage line is inspired by the garden tools of yesteryear and maintains the same high quality. Tools come with a solid forged head, one-piece hardwood shaft. 43.5" tall, with a 32" handle and an 11.5" head.

A real solid tool. Best price I found. I would suggest adding about another three coats of linseed or tung oil on the handle
