This traditional style trowel has a polished, rust resistant, stainless steel head that’s scooped and sharpened with a rounded tip. The narrow handle is made from weatherproofed FSC ash and shaped to fit the hand. It has a leather hanging strap for easy storage.

Is the Wilkinson Sword Stainless Steel hand trowel comfortable?

A good size and weight this trowel feels light and well balanced and is comfortable to use. The ergonomic handle is shaped, narrowing towards the head to sit securely in the hand.

Does the Wilkinson Sword Stainless Steel hand trowel perform well?

The trowel has a deep head with a rounded sharpened end that cuts through most soils easily – it’s best on lighter soils rather than stoney, heavy ground but it’s ideal for scooping, digging and weeding jobs and performs all these tasks efficiently. This is a great all-rounder and a handy tool for very day use.

Is the Wilkinson Sword Stainless Steel hand trowel value for money?

The stainless-steel blade will resist rust and the wooden handle is weatherproofed for extra durability. This trowel feels strong and built to last and comes with a ten year warranty. We think it’s very good value for money.
