    You get what you pay for.

    I suppose a lot depends on your height and so on. 

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
  • I don't mind paying for a good quality spade , I have a full size bulldog spade that I have had 20 + years but it gets a bit awkward in the borders so was looking for something with a smaller head image

    Why not buy a ladies spade.  They are smaller and neater and would be ideal for your borders.

    As I'm a lady image I do all my digging with a border spade - I have a wooden handled Joseph Bentley stainless steel one and I'm very pleased with it image

    I bought it via Amazon
