This Carina mini spade with artisan ash shaft and European beech wood handle, is perfectly sized, combining functionality and elegance to create a garden tool of immense sophistication.
The pointed, triangular copper blade is made from copper alloy and cold hardened for durability. It has sharp, bevelled edges making it light and nicely weighted, and so effortless to use with minimal friction. Copper will not break even under considerable stress and can easily be bent back into shape, reworked and sharpened. This mini spade will last for years, developing a graceful bronze patina over time, without rusting.
A practical tool for splitting perennial shrubs, for working in raised beds and generally working in areas where a full size spade would be too cumbersome. It is suitable for daily work in cultivated garden soils. As you work, you will enrich the soil with copper trace elements and thereby provide your plants with essential nutrients.
