Good morning I need a new Border spade due to the fact that a I lent mine to a neighbour who didn't return it (Long story) I would like a Made in England spade but have just seen thiswhich amazes yours truly,could anyone recommend one please. No-one really makes solid forged forks and spades in the UK. In either carbon or stainless. If you see any spade or fork labelled "made in the UK" - be aware this does not apply to the metal parts! By law, fitting handles and painting the steel now qualifies as made in Britain - sad but true.
