The Household Shovel by Clarington Forge is a handy heavy duty short shovel made in England. I'm told they were used for coal. in case you don't shovel coal, you can use it for cleaning up debris in the house, garage, patio, garden or even the fireplace for scooping up ashes. It's 17" long and 6" wide...solid steel with a powder coated durable finish. Heavy duty workhorse.
