A first-quality spade, along with its mate, the fork, is at the very heart of the gardener's tool complement. Our 'Jardinier' spade is just that: high-quality, forged steel, with solid, heavy-duty construction including a terrific socket. This spade is made for professional use in a country where almost all gardening--even in public spaces--is done with hand tools. A slightly smaller blade with a shallowly rounded tip distinguishes this spade from our 'Senlis' model.
France is a country where every region has its own traditional variations on gardening tools. It's our pleasure to bring you a sampling of this rich heritage of tools. This spade is made by one of the oldest tool manufacturers in France, who have been in operation since 1751. With their own research and testing labs right alongside their foundries, the French would say a that this is aserieuse
--serious--company. From the rich agri- and horticultural region of Lorraine, these tools offer you the best of both French tradition and quality coupled to modern research and innovation. This spade is a real bargain. Made of forged steel with a tee handle made of smoothed waxed ash. A tread on the right flange of the blade protects your foot.
Size: handle (including socket): 34 1/2" long; blade: 7 1/2" w x 9 1/2" l
