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.

The top of the blade has a lip to put your boot on. The ash shaft is steam-bent into a slight curve, allowing for good leverage. The T-handle is beech.
