Stanley Spade & Fork Twin Pack
I was initially put off this fork and spade set by the 3/5 star reviews. I only bought it because everything else was out of stock at the time I needed them. I'm really glad I ended up with this set.
As long as you use them for the level of work the price suggests, which is light to medium work they will be superb. You can't blame a cheap product for failing if you try and dig up a mountain.

Poor Quality Set
I bought this Stanley spade & fork set with high expectations based on the Stanley name but how wrong I was. Within an hour of standard garden use one of the fork tangs bent completely out of shape. In addition to this the top edges of the spade blade (where you push down with your foot) are angled slightly downwards which causes your foot to slip off regularly sometimes hitting your ankle in the process (it's taken the skin off my ankle after repeated slips). All in all a complete let down & waste of money. I'll be returning shortly for a refund!! Be warned!!!

Don't waste your money
I can only assume that the spade was either; (a) designed for someone with deformed feet or, (b) designed by someone with deformed feet. The radius on top of the blade prevents any purchase being applied and results in your foot slipping off and a painful gouge to the shin. The fork is made of a material with the strength of well worked plasticine and yields on contact with any soil that has a consistency of anything heavier than dry sand.
After one week-ends gardening, both the fork and the spade are going in the skip. I want my money back!!
