This classic long handled garden fork is extremely strong; it has been tested to a breaking strain of 100kg – that’s 82% stronger than the British standard. The handle of this fork is slightly longer than most forks, for reduced back strain. 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 digging fork is endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society, perhaps the highest accolade in the gardening world. Like all Burgon and Ball RHS-endorsed stainless steel tools, this digging fork comes with a lifetime guarantee.
