Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DickB Last Shovel You Will Buy!
This shovel has a lot of thoughtful features which show very good engineering design. The top of the handle has a cushioned area about ten inches in length for easy and comfortable gripping (see picture). Secondly, the top of the spade has six perforations with "starred" grip points around those holes to give your foot a firm grip on the top of the spade when you are pushing down on the blade (see pictures) . Your foot will not slip off and you will not lose momentum in digging in. The wooden handle is substantial and well-finished. This is really an "heirloom" tool which will be passed on for generations, in my opinion. Great price too! I highly recommend this shovel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by fastniky It works, after a bit.
It arrived with a BLUNT tip! I'm not kidding! Tried it, not impressed. Took it into the garage and used an angle grinder on the front end. It digs much better now! I dug a small hole to get dirt to fill a hole in my lawn, it has Great traction on the steps where my feet pushed it into the ground. The shelf ears did not bend at all. It has a piece of plastic around between the wood and the metal, I'm guessing it helps, there was no wood strain noise when I was digging.
I'm a firm believer if, it's not broken, don't fix it. Well, this shovel might be a different material then the shovels from 100 years ago, I don't know.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hdjunkie This shovel has its purpose
I bought this shovel because it is on the lighter side yet seems durable enough (even lighter than the HDX shovel, I believe). Sadly, I only got to use it one time because a contractor ended up taking it the following week. Argg! I would make them buy me a new one, but they did a big job and did it well, and for a great price. I don't think they meant to take it; they probably thought it was theirs since there were like 10 guys. Nonetheless, I really like the lighter weight. Even a slightly heavier shovel will tire you out sooner. If you don't do a lot of forceful foot/heel digging (where some people say it may bend), it really is a pleasure to use. I will probably buy it again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nathan Couldnt have bought a worse shovel!
I was digging a 6" trench in a backyard 70' x 30' to install a sprinkler system, the shovel lasted about an hour before the wooden handle snapped clean off at the base of the shovel head. Fortunately Home Depot is awesome and didnt question the return. Unfortunately I have to go back to the customers house tomorrow with a new shovel and finish the job.
