    If the raggies could read the specification of your fork, they would come to the top and beg for mercy!

    That's because they are no longer manufactured. The bees knees was the Speare and Jackson drop-forged potatoe fork. They last years, fortunately mine will see me out. You'll have to search around car boot sales for one.



    I don't think you can get trenching spades like the one in the picture which has been highly modified.

    fork

    Are flat tines forks to be found on general sale or do you need to seek them out in village hardware stores or similar ?

    most big garden centres could point you in the right direction... 'potato' fork is what you are after, but not the weird one with 10 or so prongs

    flat tinnes means the prongs have been hammered (or forged) slightly flat, so they in effect make small thin shovels, and dont just pull through the sand.

    Very interesting Smiley. It's possible they've started making them again. Lot's of people including some iron mongers complained when they stopped supplying them. It's difficult to see if it's exactly the same from the photo but must be worth a try.

    Rag are more often found in stonier or muddier sand than lug.
    A normal fork is easier to use in these conditions.

    This is what I have been using, not as good as the old spear & jackson but its paid for itself a few times over now.
