Ok...the "we recommend buying a shovel handle" should have some fine print that's states "you're going to have to work it".

Cut off the taper.

Ash handle. $8.97 from Home Depot.

Had to sand the bugger down and then tap it home!

Need a stainless screw, for now I'm good. Need to make a trip to the big lake soon...

Happy hunting!

Those are size 13 shoes for scale

Thanks Ice. Appreciate the positive replies. We'll see how she holds up, won't get a ton of use really, so I'm optimistic. Emailed Whites inquiring about warranty today and will post that when I hear back. Just curious. This scoop seems quite solid.

Very good point!

Reminds me of the old joke;

What's a sea lion and Tupperware have in common...

They both like a tight seal

Thanks man!
