To give you a good guide, can i recommend any sort of digging or hand tool with a good solid wooden ash handle and steel blade or fork.
I have used most garden tools and the only ones with any longevity are wooden handled usually ash and carbon steel blades.
The cutting tools I use the fiskars, they are reliable and give great cuts.
Much of the cheap metal tools you see about these days fail within a year.
Spend well and they will repay you with years of service.
