Our made-in-house Round Point shovel has arrived. We loved our longstanding shovel but when forced to find a new source we figured, why not make it ourselves and how could we improve it? Closest to a size 0 shovel blade, our blade comes at 7.5" wide, 10" long and weighs 2.5lbs. For the weight weenies that's actually 1oz less than our old "Un-braced" shovel and a full 7oz less than our old "Braced" shovel.
This new shovel removes the need for a brace so the entire assembly has been re-designed and connects to the Trail Boss handle (same as all other Trail Boss heads). Please be aware we strongly recommend the use of a steel handle segment for any heavier digging applications. [Handle not included.]
The Round Point shovel attaches to the Trail Boss handle with a standard coupling and is good for digging, tamping, and transferring dirt (not suitable for heavy prying see our Rock Bar).
