Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by valis Dull, Dull, Dull . . . Not for tough grass and soil
Height and weight of edger was comfortable for me (I'm 5'2") and quality of edger seemed sturdy. After reading and researching, I settled on this choice since I like a little manual work and I try to stay away from garden tools that emit too much noise and pollution, even though they may be somewhat more efficient. Anyway, I was forewarned by reviews that it would be dull, but seriously, the "blade" was FAT! Unless you live up north with nice soil and thin grass, don't bother. Down here in Florida, you need sharp garden tools and they just don't sell anything sharp. I spent about an hour filing and sharpening (same with my hoe). And even then, I spent too much effort making that perfect edge. My advice, if you have a small area and you're tight on money, take your time and use what you have already, whether it's a digging shovel, or better yet, a spade. For me, the end result was good, but cost was $37, plus file $10, plus sharpening stone $7, plus sharpening time. If you look at my photos you can see the type of grass I have and how thick the blade is on the side where I did not sharpen. You can always opt for better and faster edgers, but they are more costly. So to summarize, I am disappointed with the price due to additional cost and time to sharpen it. SInce there is no getting away from buying dull tools, why should we be paying so much?!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DavidW Nice sturdy item if you know how to use it
The construction is very strong and sturdy. The blades are not sharp but that is on purpose for safety. I tried to edge my hard and it barely made an indention. Make sure the area you are working with is wet first, this makes a big difference. Wet the area with garden hose or after it has rained. Also instead of cutting the edge place the blade between the dirt and cement edge and push the grass and dirt back. This gives the same desired look with out all the extra dirt and grass scraps.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Skip It works like a charm!
I have a few hundred feet of edging that I've been wanting to do for several years but never got around to it. After looking at several edgers and reading reviews it looked like no one knew how to design and manufacture an edger without it breaking after a few hours of work. One a risk (no reviews at the time), I've purchased this edger and we very pleased with it's design and manufacture quality. It is heavy duty and well thought out in it's operation. Rubber hand grips and the foot hold is very comfortable, even after hundreds of feet of edging. I highly rate this edger.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Patty Dull - not for St. Augustine grass
This edger is very dull. Won't cut through St. Augustine grass. My shovel works much better. Will return it.

It was just what I had hoped for, and I don't see that much anymore.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jo154 Not sharp whatsoever
I bought this one, it cost more than the others, but it claimed to have nice sharp edge. It is not sharp whatsoever. I can't understand how it is so difficult for these tools companies, that make these edgers, to put a sharp edge on them. Don't they realize it is useless without it? How can a person cut along a grassy edge if the tool can cut through the grass? Over and Over I see these tools and everyone of them are dull as can be. I don't get it.
