You’d think there wasn’t much more you could do to improve the trusty old round-point shovel, but Gemcor, maker of the One-Shot Shovel, thinks they’ve found a way. They start with a basic round-point shovel and give it wings — the “wings” provide extra carrying capacity and extra support for your foot when you step on the shovel, and the extra edges cut the ground quicker.
The 2mm steel blade connects to a 32mm diameter by 3mm thick fiberglass handle with a reinforcing metal collar. One version of the shovel has a shorter shaft ending in a D-handle — the other version features a longer straight handle with two rubber grips that wrap around the handle, an adjustable lower grip and a fixed upper grip with integrated hanger.
Pricing for either shovel starts at $30.
