For sure, this is what I had found on their website: https://www.ames.com/about/american-manufacturing/ Have long been a fan of their tools.

When you say "24 inch," what part of this shovel is 24 inches?

I'm not sure why these are marketed with this measurement. Overall length from shovel tip to top of D-handle is 43". From the top of the step to the top of the D-handle is 32". From the top of the step to the bottom of the green D-handle (where it meets the wooden shaft) is 25".

Good shovel, wider than other narrow spades and the bucket starts to approach a flat head shovel. I used this to clear grass for a new garden area and it performed as expected, flawlessly, without feeling cheaply made or pieces coming loose. A good solid American made product I recommend.

Helped us edge our front walkway!
We used the spade to dig up a straight line on our walkway. Then, we planted some ground cover to make for a beautiful front yard!
