Sneeboer Hand-Forged Spade with Steps
A digging spade with foot-protecting steps either side of a slightly out tapering, sharpened blade with longer than is typical ‘T’ shaped ash handles, attached within thick steel straps by brass rivets. With a length of about 115cm, a width of 16.5cm, and a blade height of about 28cm.The firm of Sneeboer began manufacturing garden tools in 1913, and were in the 1940s amongst the first to embrace the use of stainless steel. Originally designed to withstand the rigours of daily use by the professional horticulturalists and commercial growers of West-Friesland, with its heavy clay rich soil, and still forged, ground, and assembled entirely by hand, they offer the home or allotment gardener tools of rare and exceptional quality.
