Does this blade need regular sharpening?

The blade is not sharpened and is blunt by design. An angle grinder would be needed if you decide that you want a tapered, sharpened edge. Mine worked fine as designed.

I push mine the whole depth of the blade. Very nice look when it's done and it leaves a good enough space to get a nice layer of mulch in.

Yes it will. However I recommend you water the area well making it easier to edge and then install border.

As long as you don't lift the soil, no need to shovel. Just press straight down to edge where you want to.

Great edging tool
If you're not afraid of some manual labor this is the tool for you. It does a nice job getting a good deep edge on some mulch beds. I have used this tool for over 3 years now on multiple landscape jobs and I don't have any complaints with it. It has always given me good results. Yes, it does take a little bit of extra time, but it's more controlled than a gas powered edger. It has met my expectations so far. Please hit the thumbs up if this was helpful.

This is not the sturdiest tool you'll ever find, but it seems like it will hold up vis-a-vis its price. The serrated edge really does seem to work well. The foot-push-edge (open to suggestions for proper term) is not as wide as I might like -- I used soft soled sneakers to use this and I would have been better off with some harder soles. But really, it wasn't too bad since our lawn was nice and watered. I found my technique improved quickly. I had to redo the first 20 feet after I got the hang of it. In the end, I did three passes. 1) straight down a couple inches from the concrete. 2) at a 45 degree angle right at the edge of the concrete to cut through pass 1 and make a trench. 3) used a hoe to pull the resulting sod out of the trench I made. In step 1, I used my foot. Step 2 I used my thighs to push on the T handle (worked surprisingly well that way) since the tool was laying over at 45 degrees or more. Step 3 was fairly easy since I had cleanly cut the sod in passes 1,2.

If you hate to weed eat / edge and tired of your string breaking all the time. Or tired of the motor won't start on a gas powered one. Or you just hate it so bad you let it go for a long time before giving up and doing the job. I have about 200 feet of this to do at my home. I had an old one similar ( no teeth on the blade and no T handle ) that I had bought from Sears many years ago. A couple of weeks ago the handle broke and they do not sell them anymore. I found this one at Home Depot. This really works well in my yard. My grass grows with what I will call runners and they are tough to cut with string trimmers but not for this baby. I am 73 and I did this 60 feet in the attached picture in half an hour.

Great Edger
This is a Nice edger,It has plastic handles but the rest is galvanized painted steel. The edge of the blade has teeth and works well at defining your line and cutting threw sod.The welds are smooth and there is nothing bolted on that would break like some others I have used.This is a Great quality edger that should last for many years.I really like the design.
