All SPEAR HEAD SPADE® blades are designed from the ground up to handle your most difficult digging situations while reducing effort by up to 80%. This unique “Double Patented” blade profile gives it the impressive ability to auto-seek the path of least resistance and then gradually ease, wedge, and cut through the most challenging of conditions.

SPEAR HEAD SPADE® blades are made of carbon manganese steel that is 33% thicker and 25% harder than normal shovels. They are beveled from tip to tail at a 35-degree angle to give them an effective and durable sharpened edge. They are powder coated with an epoxy resin after sharpening. The coating is designed to wear away gradually to make the tool sharper with each use. Generous forward bent footrests make digging more comfortable, prevent entanglement with roots, and enable the blade to hold more soil. 

This spade is made with steel-reinforced fiberglass handles and has a cushioned D-grip to make digging more comfortable.

You will find that they are among the lightest and strongest shovels on the market. They are also highly weather-resistant, low maintenance, and non-conductive.

Please note - although the fiberglass handle is non-conductive, always contact "Call Before You Dig" before digging and be extra careful when working around electricity.

  • Digging Blade: 9"(wide) x 11"(long)
  • Overall Length: 40"
  • Total Weight: 4.0 lbs
