Digging Fork Sneerboer
Reckoned to be the best Sneeboer have ever produced, this Digging Fork is lighter than previous models (it weighs in at 2kg) but is heavy duty enough to cope with digging over the largest of beds. The overall length of this ergonomically superior digging fork is 116cm and the 24cm flat tines will slice through the most compacted soil.

As seen on BBC Gardeners World 2009
Verdict: This traditional Dutch hand-forged fork has a small stainless steel head with wide, flat, pointed tines designed to slice through soil more easily than thin tines. The extra-long wooden shaft ends in a small T-handle.
While this fork looks fairly utilitarian, it is lightweight and surprisingly easy to use. However, it is much more expensive than the other forks tested. Rating: 4*

I have always enjoyed working with Sneeboer so a fork and spade from their range would be a good start...
