Quality Spade


This spade is great for transplanting, stripping sod, cutting edges in beds, etc. I gave this five stars, but I think next time I purchase one it will have the shock absorbing handle. Hitting a rock or other debris in the soil tends to send the vibration right up the handle to your hands.

King of spades is one tool every gardener should have. Cuts edges around beds, splits plants and cuts sod with ease. Sharp blade, light weight and easy to use handle.

Best Money You Will Ever Spend


I've used the king of spade throughout my landscape career and it is the best spade available. The introduction of the rubber pad on top is great, due to the fact after years of beating your body, it's a little comfort that goes along way.
