                  This shovel is the best I have ever owned. It really is easier to dig with this model.

                  Cheap metal blade
                  I purchased 4 of these shovels in March 2022, after using them on only 3 projects the blades on all 4 shovels began to bend and curl. I bent one shovel blade to nearly a right angle while trying to cut through a root. We have 4 older razorbacks, purchased in 2017/2018 that are still working great! Newer shovels are clearly a poorer quality metal. Handle has also changed for a solid piece of wood to two pieces glued together, manufacturer is clearly cutting corners and costing quality.

                    Can not get it warrantied
                    We are having issues with the quality of these shovels and a lot of other products of theirs not being able to be warrantied. As you can see in the picture, the tips of the shovels split. I think a shovel should last longer than 6 months.

                      Broke day 2
                      Broke digging a very small azalea out of the ground. Piece of garbage.

                        I like this shovel
                        If a shovel's handle is going to break, it will break where the wood meets the metal. What I noticed with this shovel is that the metal rises much higher up the wooden handle than my old shovel. (see picture). The angle of the shovel will also give you more leverage when digging up dirt or tree stumps. The extra wide "power step" will be easier on your feet when stepping (or jumping) on the shovel.

                          After breaking the handle of my old shovel, I found myself in need of a new one. This one seemed like it would not have broken as easily as my old one and I was right. The handle seems larger than most other shovel handles I have used. I like the rubber grip at the end. I also like the metal part of the shovel that extends up the wood handle (at least a foot). This helps keep the handle from breaking so easily. Overall, I’m happy with this shovel as it is designed to hold up to heavy use and so far, it has.

                          Decent shovel, but lacking warranty
                          This shovel lasted a couple years of home use. It recently failed while transplanting plants. The metal head fatigued and tore while leveraging the shovel. The handle is rigid the head should be a stronger metal. Home Depot doesn’t honor the warranty, now I’m without a shovel while chasing the manufacturer’s lifetime warranty.

                            Razor-Back PowerEdge 48
                            I bought this shovel after doing some research on quality shovels. All the reviews seemed positive, so i thought i was would try RazorBack as well. I was looking for a tough shovel to dig out 4x4s that the previous home owner tried to bury in the yard. The shovel snapped during this moderate work. It seems like I was unlucky and bought a shovel with poor quality wood. It shouldn't have snapped as easy as it did. I tried contacting RazorBack and Ames, the parent company, for more information on the Lifetime Warranty. As of 5/22/20 there was no ability for home owners to contact via the phone, as the prerecorded message just refers you to an email address and then the call ends. I emailed both Ames and RazorBack but never heard anything from either. Luckily I was able to return the shovel back to Home Depot.
