My dad had this Spear and Jackson digging fork. I kept if for my use seemed a shame to get rid of it . I know I have another fork, but there you go .

Spear and Jackson a Sheffield firm make good quality garden tools. Spear and Jackson have been making stainless steel tools for a long time.
In 1760 the foundations for the firm were built when John Love and Alexander Spear went into the steel business together. It was in 1830 that Sam Jackson joined the firm and this partnership became the Spear and Jackson’s In 1985 Neill Tools bought Spear & Jackson in 1985, renaming the business Spear & Jackson plc in 1995.

*Handle
Now this Spear and Jackson digging fork that I now have has a wooden wishbone handle at the top. This is easy to grip and enables me to put some force into the spade.


*Shaft.
The shaft of the fork is wood too there is no join between shaft and handle as the wood that is used for the shaft has been split and divided to form the wishbone handle.
The hard wood used to make the shaft has been hardened to make it last longer. Handle Size - 710mm (28")*Head.
The size of this head its head 280mm x 180mm (11" x 7") . It has 4 prongs /tines. The metal goes upwards into a shaft for quite a distance along the wooded shaft. This makes it a strong tool. The head is made of stainless steel it id less likely to rust and not much soil sticks to it.
  • Use
    This fork is handy for many job . I use mine to fork through the soil before planting and forking through when I have harvested my veg
  • Price
    http://www.tooled-up.com is selling for £27.98 at http://itemlistings.ebay.com its selling for£23,99. Its only £20 from http://direct.tesco.com.
    Have fun in your garden whatever you are doing , Mary
