The best shovel

Review by Garrett M.
Verified Buyer

Sometimes a design is perfect and lasts ages.  This would be one of those times, as this shovel style is very "old" yet it still out performs anything made since its inception.  Very happy with the quality and would definitely recommend.

Great for the car, garden, whatever

Review by Kedron A.

This thing is amazingly solid. The metal of thick and sturdy with very little flexibility. Heavy coating prevents it from scratching when using in rocky soil.

I use mine mostly for gardening, and while not the most ergonomic, it’s so well rounded and capable that I don’t use many other tools. I get the impression that a quick trip to a grinder will really put a good edge on it if need be.

Good product

Very sturdy and heavy. I was struck in snow onces. With this tool I was able to get out pretty quickly. I definitely recommend

Very well-made E-tool, happy with purchase!!

Review by Anette I.
Verified Buyer

Very happy with the quality of the E-Tool so far. It is marked LHB-10 on one side and US on the other. It has the NSN marked on the bottom of the shaft. The coating is great except for some small bubbling in one area on the shovel part but it’s not bad. I expect that paint to be worn away eventually anyway. It locks up nicely with no slop.
