Our Spoon Shovels have the same high-carbon steel blades used to make our digging shovels. We use our own special patterns to manufacture the Eastern and WesSpoon Bladestern styles.
Eastern Pattern is designed for lighter, sandier soils.
Western Pattern is designed for harder, clay like soils.
Both designs have a scoop shape to allow cleaning of mud, water and backfill from holes and sewers. Handles have footage marks to indicate depth of the hole.
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.
