Top critical review
Okay but short in height and average quality.
3 July 2017
I ordered this spade by mistake, having already ordered another (a Kent & Stowe).
However, when I realised my error it was too late and I decided I'd give this one to a relative who I knew could do with a new spade.
I'm quite pleased it was an error. The finish of the spade is okay but certainly not in the same league as the other I bought. That's not the most noticeable difference though. That comes in the form of the height of the spade - it is very small by comparison.
If you're short in height then it is probably perfect but make no mistake that this isn't anywhere near the length of the other spade I made and the handle is plasticky in feel with a very different overall impression of quality.
For the price, I'm sure it'll do the job but there are much better spades out there for just £2.50 to £3.00 more.
