HIA Honorable Mention: Earth Talon Shovel

New shovel shape makes digging and planting easier in tough soils.

A new take on the classic spade makes quick work of digging holes in dirt and clay. The talon-shape point on the Earth Talon Shovel looks a little odd, but it slices through soil very efficiently. The tip also lends itself to pinpoint weeding and creating furrows, delicate work that a shovel this size usually can’t do.
