Product: Canterbury fork

An unusual early-mid 20th century very well made compact headed three tined Canterbury fork. Maker's mark too worn for me to make out but there is one. The fork is triple rivetted to a long sturdy hardwood handle which has a lovely polished patina. I think the handle is an old replacement, not the original.

A word on mattocks: These tools which can also be referred to as Canterbury hoe (blade pattern) or Canterbury fork (tined pattern) have very ancient origins were made in a huge variety of different blade patterns, head weights and handle lengths. They are very popular overseas and are enjoying something of a renaissance here. Mattocks allow you to break up hard ground and cultivate the soil without lifting the weight of a soil spit unlike using a spade. Shorter handle, lighter patterns can be used as a planting tool. With some practice in use they are very efficient tools.
