Spear & Jackson Elements Hand Trowel
Advantages: Nice weight, holds together well
Disadvantages: None really
I bought this Spear and Jackson trowel at the same time that I purchased a fork, I have larger versions of these (but not Spear and Jackson brand) but I wanted a smaller version.
I bought these not really knowing the brand, so they were not recommended to me, it was a shelf impulse buy really. I have not had any problems with the trowel at all though. The handle is made of wood and there is a leather loop at the end which makes hanging them up easy.
The metal scoop is connected well to the handle and it is a nice weight to use. I have had problems with the fork in that the first one I purchased, the wood snapped but, the trowel has had no such problems. It was not the most expensive trowel I could have bought but it also wasn't dirt cheap, I wasn't expecting perfection but it is not far off it.
This is a good price for a good product, I would recommend it to anyone who wants a hand help trowel for doing basic garden work.
