The workhorse for general digging jobs around the garden, from lifting and planting to helping break up and improve soil structure, something every garden should not be without.
A serious bit of kit for the serious gardener. The carbon steel blade has a great edge to it which can be easily maintained. With a little bit of annual TLC this will be the tool you pass down to the next generation.
The Greenman Half Brite range features all the benefits of the stainless steel range with the long multi riveted ash filled YD handle but utilises a half bright carbon steel head. Most of the old tools you see
in use today are carbon steel. The metal patina developed over time and use acts like a human suntan, protecting the skin from harmful elements. Carbon steel tools are hard wearing and have the ability to be honed to perfection by the user, in fact the more you use them the better they get.
The term ‘Half Bright’ refers to the bright (polished section of the blade) traditionally done as in this case to show off the quality of the metal.
Carbon steel tools, like all tools, will need a bit of tlc every now and then to keep them in top shape and will last for years if looked after, just like the ones of my grandfather’s I use today.
