The standard round point shovel is a great tool for moving loose material such as dirt, sand, and gravel. This rounded shovel head comes to a point to be used to break thru hard dirt for digging and mixing concrete. The strong rounded blade is great for digging and planting. The round point shovel is made of 14 gauge tempered steel blade for strength. The shovel has a forward turn step to create a firmer, more comfortable step for leverage when breaking through ground and other hard material. The head is shaped to create a fulcrum at the top of the head for greater leverage when picking up material. The head is double riveted to a smooth lacquered hardwood handle. The 48″ hardwood handle provides extended reach of tool.
