The design of this tool will save a lot of labor. Thanks to its narrow shape a trench becomes much easier to accomplish. Now I can do my trenching in half the time. Typically I would cut the soil from the side and lift out the dirt clod. Ending up with a wider than necessary trench and not as deep. With this shovel I can control the depth better and move less soil in the process.

The Razor-Back trenching shovel is a big upgrade from the old straight trenching shovel I have. It works a lot better in the trench to clean out dirt and digging new trenches. The fiberglass handle is very strong. The last foot of the handle is padded. The 10 inch tall head is made of industrial gauge steel. The fiberglass handle is 54 inches long. Nice!

With a steel, four (4) inch wide blade, fiberglass handle and lifetime warranty, this may be the last trenching shovel you need to buy. Rugged, but relatively lightweight (a little over 3 pounds) the four and one-half foot handle (securely attached to the working end by pinning and a plastic covered steel crimp collar) is provided with a cushion grip to prevent slipping, even when one’s hands are wet. The shovel blade is “scoop” shaped which will facilitate removing spoils from a trench, but it not as well suited for straight down digging (a non-curved blade would be more appropriate). The blade edge was sharp enough to get through some small roots with no difficulty. The fiberglass handle is inserted well into the blade ferrule, providing adequate support. All in all, a well-made product.

Excellent workmanship is certainly evident in this new razor back trenching shovel. It is well designed, and also well balanced which makes for comfortable handling. The fiberglass handle is a wonderful idea, in that it does not add additional weight to the tool. It feels just right, in my opinion, and the top of the fiberglass handle is also coated for ease in handling. I will be using this in place of other similar older shovels because I like the design, strength and durability of it. I also would highly recommend this product for interested Home Depot shoppers.

I use a regular shovel to get to the depth then I used this one to level the bottom of the trench when laying electrical conduit from the house to the new garage. I also use it for 4” drain pipe for the downspouts. With the curve it works better than a regular shovel to clean up the bottom of the ditch/trench It’s also easier on me back because I’m only taking out 4 inches width of material as opposed to 9 with a typical shovel, less weight. I would recommend.

I never knew these existed and always wanted to trench a couple wires but never wanted to lug around a trencher from a rental store for such a simple job. This shovel does the trick. not only can you dig but you can preserve the grass layer much better so that once you fill your trench, the grass can return to the top and fill back in. The tool is super light with because of the fiberglass handle. There is a hard, rubbery grip on the top of the handle for comfort and grip while using the tool. The shovel itself is well secured to the handle and of a high quality and should offer many years of use.

The Razor-Back trenching shovel features an industrial gauge tempered-steel blade with Dura-Torque crimp collar. Users of the shovel will also like that the extra thick wall fiberglass handle construction for its strength and durability. The 4 in. V-shaped blade is designed for digging a narrow trench, such as would be needed for underground power lines and landscape piping and electrical runs. I found that this was a very easy tool to use however the tabs on the top of the blade did not facilitated using a lot of “boot” pressure when digging in hard soil. This is a good tool for homeowners and professionals.

Trenching can be difficult in and of itself. Add top that the difficulty of sometimes needing it to be narrow to keep damage to a minimum. This shovel is a great addition to my collection of shovels. The head is narrow, thick(see image), just sharp enough and very strong. It easily cuts through boney soil with making more of a mess than needed. The fiberglass handle is the perfect diameter for my suitcase medium hands and light enough to reduce my fatigue factor. Great product and a very high recommend.

I've got some wiring to bury and was looking for a tool that would make the digging easier while also minimizing the damage to my landscaping. This Razor-Back 10 inch Fiberglass Handle Trenching Shovel is perfect for the job. The blade is narrow so the resulting trench works great for wiring, irrigation lines, and other materials. The offset angle of the blade increases leverage and reduces the amount of force needed to power through hard dirt. The fiberglass handle is strong and has a vibration absorbing grip to minimize hand and forearm fatigue. I'm pleased with this shovel and highly recommend it!
