Spading forks

Several years ago I bought 3 of the Chinese green handled 
spading forks from Lee Valley, and they have proved extremely 
good. I got the three for the same price as one Ames brand fork. 
One of the Lee Valley forks got left in the garden and run over by 
the disks - one little scratch, otherwise fine. They are very strong. 
One of the three finally got broken by our tallest gardener 
(exceptionally tall) - it became a standing joke that he broke the 
"unbreakable" fork.
