Incredibly strong, lethally sharp, surprisingly light - and golden. What more could one ask of a spade? Ideal for general purpose digging, tree planting, rootballing and mixing cement etc.
With a comfortable YD handle of tubular steel, firm tread and rigid steel pipe shaft, but weighing in at only 980g you can rely on this spade not to flex or break under heavy use.
As the paint wears off, the steel will start to rust. Regular use is the best treatment!
Most of our sharp tools are made from carbon steel - this means they will, through regular use, stain (and eventually rust) and gradually lose their edge. Caring for them involves three things…
New tools won’t need sharpening for some time, but after a while you’ll notice them gradually lose their edge, especially if you’re box clipping (you need REALLY sharp blades to get a good finish with box). Use the Niwaki Sharpening Stones for best results (#1000 grit is best for general sharpening).
