Great shovel for lots of digging, where I turn the garden over by hand. Holds a sharp edge well.

Review of Forged Round Point Shovel

2011-12-16

I selected this particular shovel mainly because of the description forged round point with solid back and also because of the fiberglass handle. I have broken wooden handled shovels and cracked the flat part of the blade just below the shank on other shovels. So far this shovel has held up. I was somewhat disappointed that the back was filled in with welded strips that could trap dirt and moisture and eventually allow rusting rather than being a solid forged shank such as a True Temper Contractors Model.
