GArden Fork Recommendation

BluebaronBluebaron Posts: 226

I seem to go through garden Forks at a rate of knots. My latest is a joseph Bentley Model which now has only 3 prongs.

I love the design of it with the wooden handle but it obviously is made from cheap steal. 


Anyone recommend a good one I don't mind paying top whack if it lasts more than a year!

    My best one was my grandad's

    my second best one came from a stall at a Sunday market.

    They don't make them like they used to

    the best ones are the old ones,I have my father-in-laws and one from the 70s,they are much stronger and you can re place the handles (have all old tools such as rakes,shovel, hoe ) and very few new ones as they don't last.where to find them? If not a relative in jumble sales and even dare I say it skips! found a old pair of sheares  and cleaned them up and they work fine.image

    Bluebaron, I lent a friend my Joseph Bentley fork and spade and she snapped one of them. Well she rang them and without a receipt got a replacement sent... which was very nice of them.image

    My trowel's gone bendy now after only a few months, but I don't have the balls to ring them.

    Might be worth a try though?

    Gardena, a German company, make excellent tools (German efficiency and all that) and offer a 10 year warranty.
