Rated 5 out of 5Â by mikegiant Strong and Robust
Use to dig out 3 big tree stumps. Perfect for getting the soil out, cutting through roots and using it as leverage. The handle is very strong and removed all vibrations which is excellent. Great grip means I never had an issue with letting go and the tool ending up in a neighbors windscreen. Handle does flex a bit, but no sign of fracturing and I was putting about 100kg of force into it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bezalel Both excellent tools
Perfect for any kind of difficult digging in hard or rocky ground.
Ideal for removing rotten stumps and putting in fence posts.
Great steel, strong but easy to sharpen with a good metal file.
The tools can easily be taken apart for cleaning or storage, just hold them by the handle with the head facing down (but off the ground) and give them a smart tap on the thin end of the handle with a mallet or club hammer.
Then simply slide the head up the handle.
All in all a great tool set, highly recommended.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Rob256 No good for heavy use
absolutely terrible quality. "Tough tools for a tough world" - yeah, right.
Probably okay for DIY use and mild gardening, but I had to dig out a 10m3 pond from hardcore for a client; within the first swing, the blade of the mattock had chipped badly from a small stone, and the pick handle gave way 3/4 of the way through.
