    I bought this little digging hoe this morning. I thought by pattern it would be an Elwell or a Chillington as they are the only makers of this shape I know of but it would seem not!

    I can get NSHAW WOLVERHAMPTON from the upper left, ‘trade mark’ either side of some sort of pixie figure with an axe, hammer and pick behind him. ‘best steel warranted’ on the upper right, and a number below it.

    It looks old going by the steel quality.
    Any clues anyone?

    It’s none of The Brades subsidiaries’ logos, of which there are many

    No problem. I have a few, the Giraffe was a hard one to find. Criterion was used for axes, WHS was used for trowels.
