Spear Head Spade

Spear Head Spade was Maker Daniel Mathieu’s solution to keeping up with his favorite hobby. Gardening at 85 years old with two artificial knees and hips was becoming more difficult, and the rocky New England soil wasn’t helping, either. Rather than give in, Daniel dug in by inventing an easy-to-use shovel. This garden shovel has a pointed spear tip and angled edges that penetrate tough soil conditions, including rocks and roots, with up to 80 percent less labor. Pick a spade length that suits your height and garden type. Whether you’re edging a flower bed, cutting turf, weeding, planting something new, or transplanting perennials, this ergonomic tool will be your go-to gardening helper.
