why this product

Stemming from the culmination of a century of innovation and design, this hand-forged tool is ideal for everyone from the intrepid, committed gardener to dabblers with a few potted plants. This spade is made by a family-run Dutch gardening company, whose garden tools are comprised of strong cherry wood and stainless steel. The sturdy implements will aid your gardening task whether it’s dividing shrubs, lifting bulbs, digging planting holes or general plant upkeep.

use & care

Gardening doesn’t have to be back breaking — and neither does caring for your hand tools. Stainless steel should be kept out of the rain and is easily polished. The wooden handle can withstand soil and sweat and the grip of the green thumb. 

production & design

Forged from steel and wood by Dutch gardeners who’ve been manufacturing garden wares since 1913, their hand tools are made to overturn the most rock laden soils while maintaining an decorative aesthetic fit to be displayed. As the company approaches its centennial, they are proud to proclaim that they are in the 4th generation of this family-run business. Over the course of their 100-years, this Dutch company has sold millions upon millions of spades and shovels.
