I've seen this spade in the shops for much more, so I was pleased with the price. It is a good quality spade, and gooding looking too. The stainless metalwork really does make cleaning off the sticky clay I have on my allotment easier.

There's not much else to say. Maybe if you were tall (I'm 5'8") it would be a bit short for you, but anyone within 4-6" of me would be fine (smaller people might want the smaller border spade). As I had seen it in large DIY chains already I knew it felt nice to handle and was the right size.

My last spade broke recently. it was a bit like a sudden bereavement. I looked at a few spades, they either looked flimsy or they had that annoying "lip" on the blade to protect your shoes. Well, maybe, but it ruins the aesthetics and that is very important in a spade.

I expected to pay around £30 for this spade and was delighted it was on offer. It's well built, it looks good, clean lines, well balanced, nice smooth connection between shaft and blade, smooth finish.

oh and it digs the ground too which is a bonus.

I received this as replacement for my grandfather's old faithful, which I had used, in my turn, for a further 50 years, within a few days of ordering. Its speedy arrival dampened my sense of mourning and I fully anticipate it will last as long.

This is a replacement for a 30 year old Spear & Jackson spade. This model is a perfect replacement, being well balanced, easy to handle and solidly constructed. As always, I have sprayed the handle with a silicon lubricant (WD40 but other brands are available!) to increase water repellent properties of the wood. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an all round professional spade.

I ordered a Spear & Jackson digging spade and requested next day delivery as I wanted to get on with some work on my allotment. The spade arrived on time and away I went intent on a good day's work. Unfortunately, the very first time I put the spade in the ground there was a loud crack and the wooden handle snapped at the point where it meets the metal shaft. So much for a ten year guarantee - my spade did not even make ten seconds!! Is this some sort of record? In case you are wondering, the ground was good and soft, with no clay, stones or any other material that might have put a strain on the spade.

I shall be getting a replacement - but it won't be a Spear & Jackson!!

Always had this make and this spade lived up to its name in quality.
It is not to heavy, but still a good solid spade.We have other garden tools of this make for 40years , only replacing the spade as it has gone "missing".

Excellent price for first class, well made, light weight and balanced tools, purchased this along with the matching fork. Very happy with purchase, ideal for what they were bought for.

Arrived on free delivery with very good price, about £10 cheaper than our local garden centre. Looks great but not used yet as I would need to be a duck to dig at the moment.
