This is a well-designed, heavy-duty spade. It is sturdily constructed and can handle any digging task. It is a little wider than a traditional spade, and is made of a heavy gauge steel, so it is very strong. The leading edge of the spade is somewhat blunt due to its heavy-duty construction, so if you are digging in very dry or hard soil, it might be beneficial to sharpen it with a file. However, if you are working with moist or loose soil, this spade will cut right through it with ease.

This is a handy shovel for helping out if you are digging post holes. We have lots of post holes as we have lots of chain link and wood fencing around the house, so this can be real handy during maintenance of the fences. So often you use either a dirt drill or post hole digger (manual) to make the initial hole, then put your post and concrete in. Well then the frost heaves it out, and you remove the concrete and have to clean out the hole or make it deeper. This will help as long as the hole is at least 6 inches or bigger. Nice thing to help remove the dirt and loose rocks. It also works nice to do some trenching by hand. It will make at least a 6 inch wide hole or trench so keep that in the back of your mind. Now the only thing I wish was better in this was that the handle is wood. When I hit big rocks, the wood might break, so I am not giving this the highest rating due to that. Otherwise its fine for most hole and trench projects.

I got this shovel to use in dividing thick growths of hostas, black-eyed susans, etc. for replanting in other areas/give away to friends. The long, narrow blade (6 inches wide at both the top and bottom and 16 inches long) and the relatively shallow "curve" of that blade (about an inch and a quarter at the maximum point) allow me to be a bit more "surgical" in my excavations. The D-handle fit my hand comfortably and the 29 inch handle worked well for my height. I can see using this also to dig narrow trenches.

Digging post holes is never fun, but this shovel helps make the job easier. It is well build and well balanced. It has foot pegs to help you dig into the dirt. It is an excellent complement to a standard two handled post hole digger. The 29" D handle lets you get into tight spaces. This tool is another excellent addition to the Ames Razor Back tool line.

My Mom always called this type of a shovel a "sharp shooter." I remember that it was the hardest working tool we had in the shed. Mom used it for everything, from breaking ground for gardens, edging along curds and driveways, weeding, you name it, this style of shovel is more than just for post hole digging as the name suggests. The width of the blade is perfect for getting between rocks and roots, plus, when full of soil or gravel, it's not nearly as heavy as a regular width spade. The length of the handle is perfect for an average height person. Not sure what a person over 6 foot will think about it, but it works for my 5'9" frame. I like the maneuverability and the strength of this shovel. The steel is thick, the shovel is heavy, the handle is oak, and the riveting is durable. I hope to get at least 10 years out of this tool.

My only problem with the shovel is the open neck (on the back side) where the handle attaches. First, I keep catching my hand on it. Second, if the handle is going to break that's where it's going to happen. For almost $40 I want a shovel that will be the last shovel I ever buy.
