Ladies planting spade
Ease of work thanks to weight savings.
It is an old tradition that garden spades with a narrow and thus slightly lighter blade are subsumed under the term "lady spade". Even if this category, viewed from today, seems a bit out of time - among the advantages of such tools classified in the group of small and light indisputably includes their lower dead weight. If we add to this the reduced "operating weight" that results from the reduced capacity of the blade - after all, a smaller amount of earth can be moved with it - the main result is that with this spade you can dig in your garden to your heart's content without tiring. And if you're looking for a planting spade that will allow you to work undisturbed in existing beds with closely spaced plantings, this forged spade is the tool of choice. Its blade edge is sharpened and the specially incorporated steps make it easier, if necessary, to help with the foot if the soil is ever very hard or crusted.
Garden tools with character
With forging, the Krumpholz family knows its stuff. Based in the Franconian Forest, the ancestors acquired the first hammer mill of their own - the Guttenberg Hammer - in 1799 and produced tools and other everyday items from forged iron. Today, the company's fortunes are in the hands of the eighth generation. The garden tools that leave the production site, which is still in its old location but has long since been modernized and enlarged, are tools of the first order: shaped under the weight of the forge hammer to suit their area of use, compacted and reinforced where necessary, provided with sharpened edges or blades and fitted with high-quality handles made of ash wood. Free-form forging, as practiced at Krumpholz, requires special skill and a sense of proportion. The steel used, a Swedish steel with chrome-molybdenum content, is tough, strong and easy to clean.
