This shovel is ready to handle your toughest tasks with less effort from you. The heavy-duty, high-carbon manganese steel blade is tapered to cut through the most challenging soil, sod and roots, and the durable fiberglass handle has a comfortable grip. Narrow, pointed head lets you dig in beds without disturbing nearby plants, and a durable epoxy coating minimizes friction and corrosion and helps prevent soil from sticking to blade.
This is a compact version of the best-selling Root Slayer® Shovel — the head is about 30% smaller — which makes it lighter weight and ideal for small spaces, raised beds, and borders. With all the sharpness and strength of the original, it's also a stellar weeder: try it on stubborn plants like knapweed, sprouted tree seedlings, dandelions, curly dock, thistles, and more!
This super-strong hand shovel is perfect for tough jobs in tight spaces.
Our Gardener’s Lifetime tools are hand-forged in Holland from the finest high-carbon Swedish boron steel by DeWit®, a fifth-generation family-owned business. Unlike stamped steel tools that tend to be flimsy, these are ready for a lifetime of use by serious gardeners. The steel tangs extend into sustainable grown hardwood handles, so that they're sturdy, ultra durable, and comfortable to use.
This is a shovel well-suited for budding young gardeners, for working in raised beds, or for senior gardeners who struggle with heavier tools. The patented blade takes small bites of earth with minimal effort — even hard-packed soil!
