I will be getting a number of tools over the next few months I am tired of constantly buying old shovels and tools at auction and yard sales only to use them for varying lengths of time and have them break, I am ready to invest in quality tools that will last and that I can pass down to the future grandkids so here are some shovels I was looking at tell me what you think is best http://www.leevalley.com/garden/page.aspx?c=2&cat=2,44813&p=45712 (I was wondering where these are made?) these are stainless steel and claim to be more durable than carbon steel So why are they so much cheaper than these Which look like carbon steel ?http://www.garrettwade.com/shopping...RODUCT&iMainCat=0&iSubCat=0&iProductID=107076 Now which do you think is the better quality? I am thinking the latter but the former says they will replace them if they break. here are some more that look pretty good I am no retired sumo wrestler but as much as I use them I really need something that is at least this good, still I like the idea of having an all stainless tool. I am not as good at replacing wooden handles as my grandpa. Kind of nice that there is a huge wooden handle manufacturer though about 40 min from my house. Still they claim these are less likely to break than the stainless ones http://www.leevalley.com/garden/page.aspx?c=2&cat=2,44813&p=46956 here are some more UK tools they claim they will last a few generations but I dont believe it not with the original handle anyway http://smithandhawken.resultspage.c... tools&uid=26087140&&isort=score&w=spade&rk=9 I have wanted one of these for awhile but the price!http://www.groworganic.com/item_GDO500_DeepSpader.html wish I could just make one by welding rebar to a pipe but I guess the rebar tines would not be strong enough wonder if their is another way perhaps I could look for other steel that would be strong enough?
