Rated 5 out of 5 by from this will cut through the hardest ground. After several failed attempts with shovels I bought locally to cut in edges in my landscape and for other tasks such as digging holes in hard ground to transplant, or to remove a plant or a bush, I bought this shovel. It ended up being so versatile. It can cut through anything with minimal effort. This helps me a lot because I have arthritis in my hands, back and knees. This is my "go-to" shovel for every task, big or small. I'm so glad I bought it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST SPADE EVER When my son used my spade at my home, he commented how great this tool worked. So, I purchased another one and had it shipped to his home. He was delighted and loves this tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Garden Shovel! I have the D-Handle version and it is the best shovel I have for planting! I use it every day, and recently dug a 18" French Drain with it. It is built to last a lifetime, and I have put some serious leverage on the handle with no problems. I am "delighted with this product and the companion Trowel, with the same hardy features. Highly recommended to my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just my size! I received the 41" handle spade several days ago. I LOVE it. It is narrow and sharp to penetrate the ground right where I want it to. I don't need to dig up a large area to get one stubborn weed. I am impressed with how well it is made, sturdy and tough to last a long time. The folded edge at the top of the blade makes a good solid contact area for pushing the blade into the ground. I plan on buying more of these to give to my adult children who like to garden, as Christmas presents. It is a pleasure to work with a quality tool! Is there any chance this company is also making a matching digging fork?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great garden tool! I bought this last year and it has quickly become my favorite gardening tool. Makes digging holes incredibly easy and is great to dig, divide and transplant perennials. I would buy another one immediately if something happened to mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't plant my garden this year without it I have a big garden that I love. I also have had two recent hip replacements that cause me to be a cautious gardener. This tool allowed me to stand as I dug up and divided perennials, dug good sized holes for new plants and dig up plants that needed moving. The tool digs easily through all roots and soils better than my traditional spade. All tough jobs that involve digging are now possible for me. I totally appreciate this tool!
