On a normal shovel that would not be an issue. But on a compact shovel 10 centimeters is a lot. Otherwise everything looks fine. It looks like a fairly sturdy shovel I will try it out to see if 10 centimeters are a deal breaker.
EDIT: went back to digging and the handle broke! In contact now with the supplier to see what can be done. Will let you know the outcome.
EDIT 2: seller offered to refund my money and have me send the broken product back. Rather then wait for a new shovel, I contacted cold steel directly to have a new handle sent out. In the mean time I fashioned my own handle to use until it arrives. Very happy with this product regardless of bad luck in the handle.
As for the shovel itself, a few words. I just got it and can't comment on durability or how it will hold the edge. That said the overall construction is solid and I really like the 2-screw handle attachment as opposed to rivets because the screws you can fix in the field. The down side of the screws, And I don't know if I just got unlucky, is my screws were put in at an angle and the caps stick out from the handle. They could be put in flush, but they weren't. Means I will have to remember to use gloves when I use it. I may also commit to taking the screws out, rotating the handle, and improving the entry angle.
The factory edge on the blade is superb. I am very much impressed.
The wooden handle had a few dents and little Knicks, so did the shovel blade. I suspect this happened in transit to the seller or at the seller facility. It could not have been in transit from the seller to me because the rest of the items in my order were not hard enough to beat up a hardwood handle.
Overall I wanted a Soviet design shovel with a western manufacturing precision. I ended up getting the Soviet manufacturing precision. I am fine with that.
