Nicely made but don't be fooled by the photo the mattock is the size of a trowel, the fork is more use.
Wish I could have afforded the sneebor tools years ago. The long handle means not having to walk on the veg beds so much. A strong well made tool. Worth the expenditure.

I used this digging tool for breaking up the compacted soil in my borders, prior to planting. Its two heads meant I could use the forked side for breaking up clumps of earth, while the mattock made short work of digging the beds. The long handle enabled me to get to the ground beneath my shrubs, which is not so easy to reach with a spade. My only quibble is that I would have liked the blades to have been slightly bigger so that I could have covered a larger area in a shorter amount of time, although this may have impacted on manoevrability."
