How was a classic not reviewed already?
- I've put it through the wringer
I think this is the standard against which many compare shovel durability and reliability. Not the lightest, nor easiest to pack (length of handle), but I abused mine with prying and ice-chipping and digging through woody debris and it lasted longer than any other shovel I've used.
