Got my scoop and spade today. One of the reasons I bought it was because of the wood handles. Was all excited about running bolts through the rivet holes and making something that will last a while. When I opened the package it had cheap, thin wall aluminum handles. The kind that gets a kink and become worthless. Thought it was funny to see the label still touted wood handles. Probably still a decent, cheap set. Just don't have the desire to finish unpacking it.
UPDATE: Amazon made a mistake and sent the wrong one. They promptly accepted my return and sent the right one. I am much happier. My only complaint is where the handle gives into the scoop wasn't bottomed in the receiving end and the stabilizing screw was not in the wood. Easy fix. Filed the handle to fit nicely, threw a little paint in the end then screwed it down. Be sure to pre drill for the screw with something small so you don't split the end like I did. Also, don't see a reason to run bolts through rivets. Should be sturdy enough. A good buy and Amazon took care of me.
Update- two weeks into the service life of my scoop, the rivets popped. In about a half hour, I drilled and installed some 10-32 hardware I had laying around. I suspect that I will need to do the other rivets eventually. Still pleased with this product and I anticipated this repair when I bought it...
