Quite a solid handy shovel..
on 25 February 2018
I bought the lixada one a while back it's a lot lighter & hasn't failed me but I felt I wanted something a bit more solid...
This is almost twice the weight & is much thicker steel..so it's personal choice & are you digging in clay or soft mud..this is exactly what I wanted.
Given the weight though I maybe tempted to take the light one out if I'm hiking with survival gear..
This is a short tool for on your knees digging & clearing & im very pleased with it as although I haven't taken it out yet it's clearly a higher quality version of the successful one I already have that mirrors the design..but instead of a rivet on the swivel joint this has a walking great bolt..much better...maybe a bit stiff to open if I'm honest so not one for my Japanese girlfriend to take when she goes herb hunting..
