Kikka Digga is a universal retro fitting digging gadget attachment for all digging forks and spades, it was designed to make digging easy by attaching a pivoted footplate to help with insertion and leverage, therefore sparing the user from any physical strains. Digging is a hazard and a pain in the back—it's the number one injury for landscapers and gardeners alike. Kikka Digga is not just for people with back pain, but for all who wish to prevent it. Manufactured in Britain, it's a high quality tool that won't break or bend easily.

Tasked with digging the garden one day, I felt that forks and spades are both archaic and labour intensive, which lead to a sore back and boredom.
While doodling on the back of a cigarette packet, I remembered Archimedes law of levers. This in turn took my idea to a local blacksmith to fabricate my idea into a physical product. I then took my newly made prototype back to the plot of land that challenged me. With the new digging gadget attached to my fork, I found it to be a breeze, a ground breaking tool—literally. After attending many manufacturing trade shows, I met my current manufacturer in Farnborough. From there we took my prototype, which was a heavy, cumbersome and expensive hand made tool into a mass produced, laser cut, slim, lightweight and super strong digger.
