The first impression is that the shaft is rather thin. On using it the half moon was really sharp and it worked well. However, within 5 minutes the short horizontal top of the handle was moving in relation to the shaft. It seems to be made in 2 parts crudely stuck together. Now I have the problem of returning it. It came wrapped in layers and layers of plastic, and because it has a sharp half moon it won't be easy to pack.
PS. Now the top of the handle has fallen off completely I can see there should have been a screw through it which was omitted in manufacture. So it is more a problem of their quality control. I will repair it myself.

I have now completed my first season of use of this tool and am very happy with it, expecting it to continue giving good service for many years to come.

I waited until now before writing my review because of the two reviews reporting problems with the handle. If there was a problem in that area, Draper appear to have fixed it, and fixed it good. There is absolutely no sign of any possibility of the handle on mine coming adrift from the shaft. That makes me glad I chose the ash handle rather than the stainless steel alternative, because there is a lot of pleasure in the appearance and feel of the wood.

Stainless is a good quality to have in the blade, though. It is robust and well shaped and I have had absolutely no problems with it. It hasn't had a particularly easy first season, as I have created some new edges, working in dry, hard ground with more than a few stones in it.

For that hard ground I might have preferred the blade a little sharper, but then I might have been suspected of intending to assassinate some latter-day Trotsky. The packaging it comes in suggests it is considered dangerous enough as it is.

EDIT, AUGUST 2014: Almost three seasons later, and therefore with almost four complete seasons of use, I remain 100 per cent happy with this item. It still looks and feels good - and there is absolutely no question of the handle, or anything else, becoming loose!

This lawn edger has a sharp half moon shaped blade (which comes in a protective cover) and a sturdy wooden handle. To a new gardener, this is one of those things you don't think you need until you see the results - you will never be happy with your lawn encroaching into your flower beds in a straggly fashion again! I had never edged my lawn before so looked up video guides online first which certainly improved my technique and waited for a day when the ground was soft after some decent rain. After my first attempt using this product (and a hose pipe to act as a guide for cutting a nice curved line) I am left with a lovely crisp edge to my lawn.

Sharp edge makes the job easier and produces a cleaner cut. It replaces an edger that does not have a stainless steel blade.

The Lawn Edger has been good so far. My previous one had quite a thin shaft behind the head, when I was edging the lawn I hit a stone and it snapped. This one has double the thickness of the old. So far so good.
One rant. I didn't want to pay a fortune for express delivery. But 2 weeks for Supersaver Delivery is a bit much. This is the 3rd time Home Delivery Network has done this to me (presumably to other people as well) they outright lied on their tracking webpage saying they had tried to deliver twice when I was in the house. Be warned. Rant over.

Great value, very strong and well made.
If used correctly this is a very strong edger with a good sharp blade. I have used it to edge my lawns which probably amount to several hundred metres without any effort at all. Being stainless steel makes it easy to clean when finished.
I have had a few other lawn edgers in the past which have either buckled or snapped after a couple of feet, this one was brilliant.
