Spear & Jackson spade

" Having only had this spade a few days as of 25/10/15, it's been used quite hard and some 20 hours later still going strong, so far it's been totally reliable, though I haven't rated its reliability, it's soft handle grip make it feel comfortable in the hand and it's light weight are a bonus also overall I give it 10/10 a good price for a top brand name and you know your buying quality "
