Like the composite the head connection area is a solid fiberglass, the balance of the fiberglass is shaped like a honeycomb, not a hollow tube and not solid. There are some resins used in a thin surface veil which provides prevents splintering and provides UV protection. But this handle is mostly fiberglass, where the composite is a mix of both materials.

  • The round point is designed to make penetration faster and easier

I own a landscape company and we dig a lot of holes for planting trees and shrubs. We do all of our work with hand tools only. It was nice to have a new, sharp shovel to dig with and at first was excited. Upon further use, I notice the shovel bending slightly where the hanle meets the shank area. It has not broke but I'm disapointed that it seems so weak. I never pry with it. I know how to use a shovel (22 years experience) and this one doesn't seem to be heavy duty. We have three King of Spades and I love them. We use them every day. Any prying that is necessary is done with these spades or the digging bar. For the price, I expected a better tool. I would never buy one of these again. Let the search for a good shovel continue...

Great shovel for lots of digging, where I turn the garden over by hand. Holds a sharp edge well.

Review of "Forged Round Point Shovel"

wrote ():

I selected this particular shovel mainly because of the description "forged round point with solid back" and also because of the fiberglass handle. I have broken wooden handled shovels and cracked the flat part of the blade just below the shank on other shovels. So far this shovel has held up. I was somewhat disappointed that the back was filled in with welded strips that could trap dirt and moisture and eventually allow rusting rather than being a solid forged shank such as a "True Temper Contractors Model.
