Dear Garden Tool Manufacturer,

I like a beautiful tool as much as the next person. However, you cannot sacrifice function for beauty. Ever.

This spade was being used to split peonies, a relatively normal gardening task that a spade really ought to be able to cope with.

The metal split. And then the blade bent at the angle you see in the photo.

This is not good.
