The specs say the blade is over 7 inches wide but I can't tell if that is at the top where you put your foot, or at the bottom where it penetrates the soil.

Answer: 
That measurement is at the top of the blade where the comfort steps are. The tip of the blade is 4.75 inches wide.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not very sharp Not very sharp to go through anything but soft dirt July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smartest purchase I've made all year We are new to Reno, so had NO idea how hard this ground was. Planting flowers was very difficult and starting a garden a scarey thought until I found this D-Handle drain shovel. Now my flowers are in and waiting for my first tomatoes. July 19, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Trench digging shovel is OK, not great Decent shovel, but definitely not heavy duty. Metal a little on the thin side. Feels like it may bend if you put too much pressure by digging too much at a time and applying too much leverage. Luckily, it had a decent warranty so hopefully Home Depot will replace if/when it breks. July 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Planting shovel excellent for elderely gardeners This shovel helps my wife and I as we are elderly, and wanted to dig small holes for planting. It worked perfectly. Very pleased with the product. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Best shovel I've ever used. Foot step lets me dig without boots too. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great shovel/spade I have used this to dig up bushes and plants from my garden. It was not expensive and works very well. A lot cheaper than hiring someone to dig them out!!!' June 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Spade Great low cost spade. Durable and usable for the money. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ......like a spoon for the cake! A very efficient tool. I was skeptical about a trenching with a spade in my dry clay soil; but I was wrong. This tool was like digging a cake with spoon. i do really appreciate it. it is very easy to use; just give a push with your foot, and there it goes down... Nice engineering design behind the manufacturing; and it is made in the USA too! May 11, 2015
