This Dutch border spade has a slightly smaller head to make it lighter and easier to manoeuvre. Ideal for both smaller plots and smaller hands.

Like all De Wit tools, it’s expertly crafted for outstanding performance and durability. The chunky T-handle is perfectly balanced for easy two-handed use, and the tough carbon steel head is fastened with a solid-strap joint to make it extra robust and shock resistant.

The curved, sharpened blade is designed to slice into the earth in one stroke, and includes handy treads on the stepping surface to protect your feet - and limit wear on your wellies!

Handle length 62cm
Head length 38cm
Total length 100cm
