This is a very good spade. I was in two minds about buying as I've previously bought cheaper discount shop type spades, but the quality of the Burgon & Ball really does justify the price - it makes digging so much easier. Highly recommend.

Spade review Terence Connor on 5 August 2022

Burton Ball pointed spade makes digging all areas including around stones, whilst not a joy, it certainly makes the job easier. The handle is a good shape but needed to sand paper a couple of areas of the wooden handle as it was rough in places and not completely accurate at the joint forming small ridges but would recommend this spade.

Great spade. Jayne on 10 July 2019

Despite having really hard stony ground, this spade makes digging so much easier. A great quality spade.

A vast improvement. Geoff See on 20 September 2018

Much easier to dig with than the more conventional shape of spade even a stainless one, very pleased with this.
