The advantages of forging steel are the special shaping and the high compression of steel.
Our handles are made of unpainted ash.
Ash-wood is one of the preferred lumbers, where the highest standards of strength and elasticity are provided. The unpainted wood absorbs sweat and guarantee a firm grip. The perfect handle to complete the benefits of our forged spades.
The rivets can be removed easily, quickly and cleanly for a handle-change.
Forged out of one piece
Only forging the material creates an interlocking steel and special tightness of the molecules, which results a high elasticity and resistance against wear-out and breaking. The blade of our spade absorbs excess power by a springing property and do not bent! This advantages can not be reached by a spade produced from metal sheet.
Forged back into the blade
Our spades are light in comparison to welded steel spades.
Forged spades reaching a high elasticity and resistance at a low blade-starch.
For a steel-sheet-spade a thick material is used to protect the blade from bending. In addition, extremely large, so-called cottage, pressed into the sheet in order to achieve stability. The spade becomes unnecessarily heavy.
The material of the blade tapering to the end. These so-called conical shape of the blade can not be reached by a spade produced from metal sheet.
Each blade wears out with time through the work.
But only conical blades are always be sharp. A property that makes penetration into soil and cutting roots very easy.
