The spork. Half spade half fork the spork is an ingenious two in one garden tool.
Designed by Oxford engineer Robert Todd.
This light weight but very tough blade can be used for general digging. The 75cm long wooden handle is suitable for both men and women and make light work of digging.
The blade has an ingenious cutting edge for cutting through roots, slicing turf, trims lawn and border edges and slices through heavy clay.
The blade has gaps which reduces the weight, also the surface area is less and doesn’t become so heavily clogged in heavy soils making digging a laborious back-breaking chore. The blade can riddle soils like a fork.
The triangular pointed teeth can make easy work of weeds in a gravel path as well as raking for seed drills.
This nifty garden tool can be used for digging in the garden as well as making light work of digging and planting vegetables in the allotment.
The SPORK blade is easily sharpened to keep a true edge throughout its long working life.
Robert has also produced the SPRAKE and smaller hand working garden tools in much the same ingenious design.
