Questions & Answers

What is the width of the blade at the bottom of the spade?

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.

Where are AME's tools made?

Asked by: PiggySu
I can tell you that the blade has "USA Tempered" struck into it and sports a US Patent Number. This suggests to me it was probably assembled somewhere else BUT ... I can tell you it is sturdy. Blade is very thick, handle is a hard wood, No matter where it was assembled, it is quality.
