An English style spade with a straight faced blade and virtually no taper. The perfect tool to cut the edge on planting beds or dig anywhere you want to leave a flat surface. Foot rests, forged into the back of the blade, help assure comfortable digging. The Straight Spade's depth-of-cut is easy to control and the blade can move level and smoothly through soil, it's the perfect tool for turning raised beds.
Blade is hand-forged in Argentina and fitted to a matched hardwood handle. It's a remarkably balanced tool. The Short Straight Spade is hand-finished in the USA.
