Joseph Bentley Long Handle Spade

Crafted of solid ash and stainless steel, this spade will provide years of rugged and reliable service in the garden. Pairing an extra-long handle with a narrow head, it promotes good leverage (and better posture) and fits handily into smaller raised beds. Small treads on top of the spade let you use your foot for leverage. Polished stainless-steel head resists rust. Stamped with Joseph Bentley's signature oval badge. Solid ash wood handle. 5 1/2" x 1 1/2" x 3' 3 3/4" long overall. 3.5 lb. Designed by Joseph Bentley, a horticultural tool company founded in Sheffield, England, in 1895.

Misleading Title - lovely but tiny
May 8, 2012
This spade is beautifully constructed but it is VERY small. The title is definitely misleading - It is actually a border trimmer. The blade is very small and the handle short. Sadly, I returned it as I purchased it for my husband. Check the measurements before purchasing.
Cons: misleading title

Long handle misnomer
You are correct that this is a smaller sized spade. Long handle tools refer in general to rakes, shovels and hoes, which tend to have long handles. This spade is sized better for someone of smaller stature and is very good for ladies and older gardeners. The fit and finish is second to none and is a tool that one can use with pride. (if they are 5.6" or less)
