This long handled garden fork is slightly smaller than our 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; it has been tested to a breaking strain of 90kg, compared with the British standard of 55kg. Crafted in FSC certified ash, the handle has a comfortable 'Y' grip, double riveted at the base for strength. An extra-long, double-riveted strapped socket 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. This stainless steel border fork is endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society, the world’s leading gardening charity. Like all Burgon and Ball RHS-endorsed stainless steel tools, this border fork comes with a lifetime guarantee.
