Product Information

America's favorite tool for digging and moving soil, with a shorter handle.

Like our long-handle shovel, if you've never used a Lynhaven Forge tool, you'll be surprised what what a really good shovel can do. It's hand-forged blade stays sharp and doesn't deflect when loaded. The short handle makes it easier to maneuver in tight places, or when more control may be required. 


Blade is hand-forged in Argentina and fitted to a matched 'D-Grip' hardwood handle.. It's a remarkably balanced tool. The Short Shovel is hand-finished in the USA. 


Shipped in single carton via USPS or parcel delivery carrier.


Clean spade after use. Store away from weather and off the ground. Wipe cleaned blade occasionally with lubricating oil.


The tools from Lynhaven Forge have been hand-forged and proven in use for more than a century. We guarantee each of our shovels and spades for the life of the original owner... even if you just wear it out.  No hassle, no forms. Just send us the worn out or broken tool, and we will send you a new one.

Hardworking Shovel

Used my new shovel when replacing some old plantings in areas with lots of roots. Soooo much better than the shovel from the hardware store!
