The combination of strength, toughness, and hardness found in Hickory is found in no other commercial wood and is why it is prized as a great material for tool handles.
The wood handle is slotted and the tool is inset into the slot then riveted all the way through with brass rivets. The wide blade holds a lot of soil and the pointed shape allow you to use it in the field. It is great for working in raised beds too!
Dimensions: 22" long; handle is 14"
