The Truffle hoes, also called Vanghetti, must be chosen according to a series of very specific rules that vary from Region to Region and which mainly concern the measurements of these tools.
The most used hoes and spades are:
The folding model remains the most comfortable because being lockable it can also be put in your pocket and used only when needed.
Spade with arrowhead
It can be used for soils of a certain hardness, with the tip that must be able to drill the right holes with all possible precision;
Spade with heart tip
It does not present particular differences compared to the one with an arrow point;
Spade with rectangular tip
This model is an excellent solution for softer and easier to penetrate soils;
It adapts best to any type of terrain, even if it must always be handled with the utmost care;
Spade with flat blade
From the name with the flat blade but with a high degree of strength and resistance;
Stainless steel spade
As for the tip material, stainless steel is usually preferred over iron because it guarantees a higher overall yield, as well as maintaining its full potential for a longer period of time.
In summary, the choice of the most suitable Zappino or Vanghetto for searching for truffles depends on a series of aspects and regulatory parameters, but what always counts is to respect the environment and comply with the provisions of the Territory in which you intend to collect the truffles.
