            Comments about King of Spades:

            The King of Spades Is a strong, hefty tool with a sharp edge that sharpens with use, and it has a stoutly welded handle that won't bend or break away from the blade. The description offered would be much improved if it emphasized this key point. I had a hard time trusting its technical language veiled in vagueness about how it performs. I hesitated for months not trusting it would be flimsier than represented and it therefore would not live up to its name since most consumer goods do not, but desperate for a better and more reliable spade, I bought this one to marry it with an equally matched, well-made queen of forks called, the Boeren Farmers' Fork by Dewiit Tools. In my garden, this fork performs like Poseidon's trident and it cannot be more perfectly matched than with the King of Spades!

                I needed a spade that would not break when digging a tree to re-locate it. This tool fills the bill.
