Default Fabricated a larger shovel

I made another shovel this time a larger one that is roughly the same dimensions as a Lesche relic hunter. I needed something bigger for the woods.
I used some flat stock that I had for the blade, and some 1" type L copper tubing for the shaft and the handle. After a few outings I noticed that the blade edge was starting to show some damage from digging rocks. I didn't have any tool steel filler rod so I hardfaced the edge with some old drill bits. Worked great. Thanks for looking
