Purchased for my sister-in-law as a Christmas present, so the ratings are a bit of a guess - she said she loved it though! Very well made from high-quality materials and ideal for its intended purpose but very expensive for what I assume will be only occasional use.
This is just brilliant. The usual top Sneeboer last-forever tough as can be quality, but such a neat little spade to squeeze into all the tricky places where you can't get to manoeuvre a big one. So clever.

Calling a Spade a Spade - product testing by John Swithinbank
Have you ever wished for a spade that could dig up established shrubs and small stumps. Well this could be exactlywhat you have been missing. To me, this is the world number one spade. Its narrowish blade is slightly concaved and the bottom of the blade has been designed to slice through the toughest of soils. I used it on compacted ground full of brambles and was blown away by its willingness to blitz out the root systems. I've lost count of the number of times in the past that I have broken a spade or fork trying to dig out an established plant. Within a few seconds using this I knew. I found myself excavating and undermining the established root systems with ease and with confidence that this spade was indestructible. Put this one at the top of your Christmas list and you won't need the gym this January!
