Our Straight Shovels are made with Ash hardwood handles and special 10-inch carbon steel blades with boron. The blade is forged to our special straight pattern and is then heat-treated . The straps are electrically seam welded to the blade. This shovel is completely straight from end to end.
We also offer this straight shovel with a 6-inch blade. Handles are marked with footage marks to indicate the 3, 4, and 5 foot depth of hole.
All shovels are tested for strength, balance, hardness, finish and workmanship. As always, be careful when using shovels and spoons. Handles are made of wood and wood can break.
Shovels are not to be used as pry bars or have leverage applied to them.
