Auva is a slender, elegant border spade. It has a steam-bent ash shaft and a beech T-handle. The head is work-hardened tin bronze, curved in two planes for additional strength. The pointed end to the blade is very sharp, allowing it to slice easily into the soil. The lip at the top of the blade saves your wellies, too.
PKS bronze tool heads are hand made of solid bronze (copper with a little bit of tin) by a smithy in Hungary. The handles are from European hardwoods: ash, beech and lime.
Although they may look like works of art, these are hardworking tools, designed for strength not looks.The tool heads carry a no-quibble, 25-year guarantee (excluding normal wear and tear) and the handles have a two-year guarantee. The advantages are: they don’t rust; they have sharp edges; they are hardwearing and will last for years; the metal is known to deter slugs and snails; they slice into the soil and come out clean.
Overall: 1140mm (45in), Blade: 240 x 150mm (9.5 x 6in), Weight: 1500g (54oz)
