This is a great shovel, sturdy but not as heavy as a fiberglass handled shovel. I was looking for a light weight shovel as I work in the garden a lot and am now a senior citizen - weight slows me down.
Sturdy handle and excellent balance. The length gives superb leverage. The blade is rugged and sized just right for the average size adult male. Great value.
AM Leonard quality never disappoints and this shovel proves it. Great proportions, perfect angle of blade, & a really nice, strong easy-to-hold-on-to handle. Blade is sharp, strong & slick. Overall a great value you can really dig. Almost makes digging a hole pleasurable.
I ordered a few #RPS this spring to try out with our landscape installation crews. They can be rough on tools, shovels especially. The Leonard Round Points have held up all season, and look like they may make it well into next year before someone gets too rambunctious. Good value for the price.
