- Cuts through soil like a fork, digs like a spade
- Slices away surface weeds before digging
- Lifetime guarantee
Voted “Testers’ Favourite” border tool by Which? Gardening magazine (October 2008), we agree the De Wit spork is a true garden essential.
Pitched against nine rival tools by a team of professional gardeners in a four-week trial, it was assessed for a range of tasks - loosening and turning soil, clearing weeds and planting perennials and shrubs.
Not only was it voted favourite, 7 of the 8 testers said they would happily buy one - and 3 would swap their conventional spade for one!
The innovative tool was designed by Englishman Robert Todd and is made by acclaimed toolmaker De Wit in Holland. Bringing together the best of spade and fork, it pushes into even compacted soil easily thanks to the serrated cutting edge, and is great for turning and aerating, as well as digging, edging and planting.
The sharpened edge easily cuts away surface weeds, slices through tough roots, and makes light work of breaking up both light and heavy soils.
"It’s an ideal compromise between a spade and a fork - I would definitely buy one."
"It’s great for clay/loam soils, good for digging and turning over soil, and for breaking up compacted ground."
“It was light and comfortable to use thanks to the longer length handle.”
