Might I suggest an A M Leonard square point / transfer shovel?my trusty companion of many hours of digging has finally gone beyone the small crack to where it is going to end up parting of the ways metallically. so today while i was out running errands i was shopping for a new flat short shovel. one was $35 and i didn't like the design of it, another was $20 and it looked like it might barely last the 5yrs of the warranty period. so i went to another place and checked out what they had. they didn't. not many places had a short square shovel like the one i've had for all these years. i have a few more places to check the next few weeks as i won't likely be using this shovel a lot anyways, i won't really need it until this fall.
the question becomes can i use another shovel that i already have and not get a replacement? possibly, but i really like having this size of shovel for almost all my garden digging since i'm not digging that deeply and most of what i do is trenching i like the flat bottom and edges the shorter square shovel makes. hmm... i guess we'll see what happens next when i get there...
