Is this baby full tang or is the handle all plastic so it can break because I am so strong

Is this a joke? I'm 5'11 210Lbs, been bodybuilding 5 days a week, naturally, since 1997. There is no way you're going to break this Trowel. It is super tough. I don't know what you are trying to do with it, but it can handle whatever you throw at it, and it's ready for more. You will wear out before this Trowel will. I've used it on hard ground, while hitting big rocks under, no bends, no breaks.

what is the difference between a garden trowel and a spade

Dear Ms. Benson,
Usually a garden trowel has what I think of as a "traditional" shovel shape, and is held in one hand. A spade (at least the ones I've used) has a full-sized handle (meaning if the blade is resting on the ground the handle comes up to a height somewhere between your belly and chest) and rather than coming to a point - the end of the blade is straight (square). I use a trowel to dig small holes and I use a spade when I want a straight edge instead of a point (cutting out squares of sod, for example). Hope this info has helped, and all the best to you!

Is this light

It's so, so. Small for sure, but it wasn't sharp at all, it was a pain to try to dig with

Is the handle straight in-line with the trowel or is it curved up or bent at an angle? How comfortable is it to use?

The handle is straight in-line with the trowel and is formed to fit comfortably in the hand.

  • A foot long, half handle and half blade, three inches wide. One-piece cast aluminum alloy with a thick plastic handle over a metal shaft. Comfortable to hold and not too heavy. The point was kind of blunt, but two minutes with a disc sander took care of that. My only concern is how well the metal will hold up to prying rocks and such. Ideal for potting. Maybe pushing it with serious digging, but that’s what dynamite is for.

  • I have many Fiskars products and I have been pleased with each one. I expect this purchase to be the same. I’m tired of inexpensive trowels where the handles break off from the metal part. This one is so sturdy and I haven’t had any problems yet with it. Due to other reviews having a breaking problem, I will definitely update this review if that happens. This trowel is comfortable and was a great price!

  • The shovel is nice and durable but not good for digging a shallow grave to hide a body. Great for flowers though.

The Fiskars Corporation that we know today started in 1649 in a Finnish village called Fiskars. At the time, the company was known for producing plows that were superior in design and steel quality. Fiskars is now a leading global supplier of consumer products for home, garden, and outdoors. Fiskars produces many different types of gardening tools and accessories, many of which I own, so I was interested in trying one of their trowels: the Fiskars Ergo Trowel 300S.

Ergo Trowel (300S)

An ergonomic design makes digging easier than ever!

Designed for easy use and lasting durability, our Ergo Trowel features a special handle design that reduces hand and wrist fatigue. The cast-aluminum head resists rust and won’t snap off while you’re digging, no matter how tough your soil is. Additionally, the handle features a hang hole for convenient storage.

Handle

The Fiskars Ergo Trowel 300S is 12 inches long with an orange and black plastic handle. Fortunately for gardeners, the Fiskars signature orange color in the handle makes the trowel easy to find in the grass or in the garden.

There’s a hole at the end of the handle (from front to back) with a black nylon cord looped through it so you can hang the trowel up in the tool shed. Because the hole is through the front, it doesn’t rub against the palm of your hand.

Ergonomic Design

As stated in the name, the handle is ergonomically designed; it’s slightly contoured to give you a better grip and has a non-slip surface in the middle. I was able to use it easily – my wrist didn’t hurt or get cramped while I was digging and planting.

Because it’s made of aluminum, the trowel is lightweight (about 3 ounces), making it ideal for those who fatigue easily or spend a lot of time working with a trowel.

Resistant Trowel Head

The trowel head is made of rust-resistant cast aluminum. It’s not razor sharp but it is more beveled toward the tip, making it easy to dig into the soil. The sides curve up so it holds soil, which helps when digging holes and pushing the soil aside or filling containers.

And if it’s accidentally left outside, it’s not going to quickly rust.

Where to buy

Fiskars gardening products are available at many different types of retail outlets: nurseries, hardware stores, Target, Walmart, Amazon, and through the Fiskars United States website.

Recommendation

I recommend this trowel for any gardener. It is lightweight, is corrosion resistant, has a secure grip, and is a good value for the money. It digs well through a variety of soil types and is comfortable to use based on its ergonomic design. This is a not a trowel that has to be cleaned, dried, and coddled so it would be an inexpensive model for beginners or young gardeners to use.
