Bulldog Tools have been at Clarington Forge, Wigan, England since 1780.
Our solid forged spades and forks have heads made from a single piece of steel.
The steel is of a specification which results in exceptional strength with the flexibility to absorb all the pressure of hard work without distorting or breaking.
Our forged heads are manufactured using Bulldog’s original forging machinery at our Indian facility.
Upon completion, the heads are sent back to Clarington Forge, Wigan where we craft the wooden handles from raw material using the same process we have done for generations.
The combination of the forged heads and naturally strong ash handles result in producing our Premier range to the highest levels of quality.
These tools are the gold standard by which we measure all the tools we make.
Our tools are built to last.
Their value is in their longevity and that’s why it’s worth making an investment in a tool that carries the Bulldog name.
When we hear that a customer is still using our tools nearly two decades after their purchase, or how our tools have out-lasted other tools and been passed down to the next generation, we’re not surprised!
It’s the reputation the Bulldog brand stands for.

Spear & Jackson
The roots of Spear & Jackson date to 1760, when drapery maker John Love decided to found a steel making company in Sheffield, where that country’s production of steel, cutlery, and tools were becoming centered due to an abundance of raw materials.
He was joined in the business by Alexander Spear, a wealthy merchant from the nearby town of Wakefield, and the new firm took the name Spear & Love.
Over the following decades the company came to focus on producing saws, and business grew.
In 1814, with the firm now run by Alexander Spear’s nephew John Spear, an apprentice named Sam Jackson was added. Jackson proved a capable assistant, and in 1830 the company was renamed Spear & Jackson.
The firm continued to produce tools of all types throughout the 19th and into the 20th century.
Today Spear & Jackson are owned by parent company Neill Tools, and the trusted brand in gardening tools continues to offer quality gardening tools.
