This border fork is slightly smaller than the digging fork, making it ideal for smaller gardeners, for digging in confined spaces, and for those who prefer a lighter-weight tool. It is nevertheless extremely strong and has been tested to a breaking strain of 200 lbs, compared with the British standard of 120 lbs.
The FSC certified Ash handle has a comfortable 'Y' grip and is attached to the base via an extra-long, double-riveted strapped socket that introduces strength and an element of flex at this key joint. The stainless steel tines are highly resistant to rust, and slide easily through the soil. The tines are rolled, for outstanding strength and resistance to bending.
Like all the Royal Horticultural Society-endorsed stainless steel tools, this border fork comes with a lifetime guarantee against manufacturer's defects.
