When I was young spades had a sort of lip on the top of the blade where one's foot goes, presumably to minimise damage to footwear when digging. The one I have is around 20 years old and is nicely worn in with a sharp edge - but no lip on the top. Does anyone know of an attachment that can be put on to save my boots?
Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.
Personally I think trying to fix a reinforced lip will be a waste of effort. It would come off too easily or would fracture. If it is that much of an inconvenience I would use sturdier gardening boots.
