Overall good quality shovel. There has been some cracking noises during use, but typical for a wood handled shovel and no breakage.

Didn't last 3 months
Bought this and worked good at first, but then you can start to notice "creaking" at the neck of the spade and give it 2 more diggs after that and the photos will speak for them self.....and mind you I can't find anything on the website about a "15 YEAR WARRANTY" just a 90 day

Im a gardener/pruner for most of my life, as i went through toools quickly i started buying better tools. I really like Ames wooden handle tools as they have a good strong feel to them and i am hard on tools, and that they are wooden handles. I perfer wood as i like its looks and that it's strong if you just keep them out of the rain, and yes they have a 15 year guarantee so i definitely recommend this product...

Ames used to be the best shovel out there. I still have several blade that just need a new handle. I bought this one since it was only $2 more than buying just a handle to fix my old one. It is super flexy and twists easy in the hard AZ dirt and rocks. Handle was creaking since day one. Are they made of pine now??? The handle broke after about 50 minutes of using it over 3 months. Ames quality has gone down hill from what they used to be. Will not buy another. Maybe just an ash handle for my old spade that didnt flex.

The finish on the wood is not 'furniture grade', a bit rough. However that is perfectly OK for a shovel. Some 200-400 grit sandpaper could easily fix that, if you wish. Took me ~ 20 seconds to knock off the sharp spots in the finish... You should be wearing appropriate footwear (and gloves) using this tool. The bent edges of the shovel blade backside have 'unique' anti-slip features. (See picture) The three punched holes in the lip of the blade provide excellent 'traction' for a boot. Works well for my general needs.

(What's this)
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.

(What's this)
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.
