A classic English tapered spade blade, fitted to a longer hardwood handle. With a longer handle, the blade has over twice the leverage for breaking out tough soils and turf. Dislodging rocks and debris becomes much easier. Foot rests, forged into the back of the blade, help assure comfortable digging. With the Long Spade, you'll quickly get accustomed to less back pain in gardening.
The blade is hand-forged in Argentina and fitted to a longer hardwood handle. The spade is hand-finished in the USA.

The long spade is a thing of beauty, and extremely well built. The blade's steel retains a forged texture, and for my taste, you are completely right not to over-polish it. It gives me the sense of using a true craftsmen-made tool, which may not make the digging easier, but adds to the satisfaction I get from gardening.
