Very few, if any garden tool makers still offer this vintage D-handle border spade with a one piece Ash hardwood handle. Sneeboer Tools chooses wood specifically for its straightness and tight wood grain for this D-Handle perennial Spade. The shape of the handle is the only difference in this spade and like the T-handle model you'll find it a joy to use whether digging, soil aerating, transplanting or planting perennials and shrubs. The only decision is which style grip feels best to you. The true romance of old time gardening tools really shines in this one!
Great size for flower beds and raised bed gardens. Handmade in Holland – Lifetime Guarantee!
This D-handle border spade is hand-forged from stainless steel and fitted with an Ash hardwood D-handle from FSC Certified forests.

“Anyone who has ever had a Sneeboer tool in their hand will never want to use anything else.”
…this is so true! Pictures just don’t do these tools justice. The combination of weight, length, shape of head, strength and balance make Sneeboer garden tools like no other. For nearly a century, every single tool is individually hand-made of the highest quality stainless steel by the artisans at Sneeboer - true works of art.
Sneeboer stainless steel garden tools have been hand forged in the Netherlands since 1913. Today, third generations of the Sneeboer family still produce the finest garden tools available.

Feels great in my hands, exceedingly well made, Sneeboer makes tools to last a lifetime, and then pass along to the next generation.

This spade is a real delight--both in appearance and in working ability. It feels great in my hands and cuts through tough sod and hard soil with no problem. It is built to last, which is important to me since I do a lot of garden work for other folks and I want well-made tooks that stand up to heavy use.

I just purchased a bunch of Sneeboer products from here and they look beautiful. They're truly a piece of art and every bit what I expected! I've only used this shovel to dig a hole to transplant an ornamental grass I divided.
It worked great and I especially liked the feel of the D-handle. Also, all of the tools had beautifully sharpened edges. Obviously, these tools are a luxury, but you will not be disappointed! I plan to get many many years out of these tools and will enjoy using them.
